Arnprior /The Ottawa Valley

John Street in 1909.

One reason to visit Arnprior (Arn-land of, Prior-the Priory) is a stop at Wes' Chips located on the main road into town. The chip wagon has been here for at least 40 years and still attracts long lines of tourists and locals. The secret to a good chip is to only cook potato chips in the oil and nothing else.
Also located in Arnprior is the old O'Brien Theatre. Built in 1919, it's a survivor.
