is a massive
four-storey underground bunker, built between 1959 and 1961. During the
Cold War, top officials were to take shelter here in the event of a
nuclear war. It was active as Canadian Forces Station Carp until 1994.
In 1994, the Diefenbunker was designated a National
Historic Site of Canada because it is considered the most important
surviving Cold War site in Canada. The bunker is important as an
engineering achievement and to the critical path method of planning
used in its construction. In addition, the Diefenbunker is symbolic of
the Cold War, a strategy of nuclear deterrence and the Canadian
people's determination to survive as a nation following a nuclear war.
Today, it operates as a
not-for-profit, charitable museum with award-winning tours and programs.

The Swan At Carp
108 Falldown Lane
TripAdvisor: "The Swan has reopened.
Renovations are complete breathing new life into The Swan. Excellent
food and service to this village pub and eatery. Not the usual pub fare
though but with a wide selection of choices all well done. Food and
desserts are prepared by two graduates of Cordon Bleu in Ottawa. Needs
to be experienced to be appreciated. No loud music; no TVs to distract
from the ambience and fellow diners."
