Arnprior 125th Anniversary Monument

The monument dedicated to Arnprior's 125th Anniversary occupies a place on the north side of Madawaska Boulevard just to the west of the Madawaska River in Arnprior.






This monument was dedicated on July 19th, 1987 to
commemorate the 125th Annivesary of the incorporation
of Arnprior as a Village in 1862. Arnprior later achieved
status as a Town in 1892.

The two main elements of the monument that are evidence
of the history associated with the site and the Town are the
limestone pillars and the cast iron bell.

The bell came from the Arnprior Town Hall which was
constructed in 1888.

The stone came from a grist mill which formerly stood
on this site. The mill was constructed by Daniel
McLachlin in the 1850's.

The monument stands as a symbol of civic achievement
for the people of Arnprior, past, present and future.
