Histoire administrative

The Carleton County Historical Society was established in 1960, after Jock Fraser, K.E. MacLauchlan, and Laura S. MacLauchlan applied for letters patent. The society's first meeting, held 26 May 1960, named Kenneth Homer, Jock Fraser, Rowena Caulkin, and Carolyn Chase as its first directors. The society's major functions included obtaining property, establishing historical sites, and promoting the history of Carleton County. The society was responsible for discovering and collecting materials that illustrated the history of the county, including its exploration, settlement, development, and activities in peace and war, and its progress in population, wealth, education, arts, sciences, agriculture, manufactures, trade, and transportation. Materials included printed documents, manuscript papers, and material objects illustrative of the life, conditions, events, and activities of the past and present. The society provided for the preservation of these materials and for its accessibility to the public. Connell House, Connell Street, Woodstock, NB, was chosen as the society's office and location for historical materials and artifacts.
