Old Carleton County Court House

OCCH 2013 (1)Built in 1833 and expanded in 1866, the Old Carleton County Court House in Upper Woodstock was the first courthouse in Carleton County. Many county residents passed through its’ doorway with a variety of motives – passengers awaiting the arrival of the stagecoach, farmers attending agricultural exhibitions, politicians and their followers on declaration days, audiences for choral concerts, magistrates, judges, jurymen, lawyers and litigants, petty criminals, murderers, spectators who came by road and river from miles around and trial-watching pupils from the school next door.

In 1911, the County Council sold the Old Carleton County Court House and it was transformed into a barn. For half a century, cattle and horses stood in stalls that were built, in part, from the judge’s bench. Purchased by the Carleton County Historical Society in 1962, the monumental task of restoring this once-magnificent building to its former glory began.

Connell HouseConnell House exetrior 2015

Connell House was built in 1839 for the Honourable Charles Connell (1810-1873). Its Greek Revival design is characterized by the eight Doric columns that flank the portico and give the historic site a kind of stately grace, and an aura of refinement. Connell House is a National Historic Site and has served as the headquarters for the Carleton County Historical Society since 1975.

The Society began a massive restoration of Connell House’s interior in 2005 and it is now open year round as a museum and licensed rental facility. During the summer months staff dressed in period costume, give guided tours while entertaining you with intriguing stories of Woodstock’s extraordinary past. A special 2016 summer exhibit featuring aboriginal art and artifacts including paintings, quill work, baskets, pottery and jewelry will be on display throughout the main floor.
