Historical King's Highway 44 Photographs
Above - Entrance to the Department of Highways' Roadside Park at the Hwy 44 & Hwy 29 Junction (later Hwy 15) in Almonte in 1948. The Almonte DHO Roadside Park had a 10-acre wooded campground, cooking stoves and washrooms for the convenience of motorists using area highways. Administration of the roadside park was eventually transferred from the DHO to the Town of Almonte (now part of the Municipality of Mississippi Mills). The former Almonte DHO Roadside Park was situated immediately adjacent to the Hwy 44 Junction in the northwest corner of the present-day Gemmill Park. Photo taken on September 11, 1948.
