SMALL-TOWN JEWEL

THE RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT

A small-town jewel perched on the stunning Mississippi waterway where river meets lake, Carleton Place was founded for its abundant water access. The stories of river, lake and town became irrevocably intertwined nearly 200 years ago when settlers first laid eyes on Morphy’s Falls. Since then the Mississippi River has played an important role in the arts, heritage and very culture of the town.
