Airline magazine publishes feature story on Almonte

re:porter, the glossy magazine published by Toronto’s Porter Airlines and distributed to the 2.45 million passengers who take its flights each year, carried a feature story on Almonte (PDF format) in its March/April 2013 issue.

Extensively illustrated, the story profiles a variety of local businesses and attractions. The Textile Museum receives special attention, as do the Almonte Riverside Inn, Heritage Court, Tin Barn Market, Fulton’s and other Almonte destinations.

Titled “Post-Industrial Revolution”, the story says of our town:

Almonte, Ontario, was once referred to as “North America’s Manchester,” but that outdated sobriquet hardly captures the enchanting, quaint appeal of this historic town, a half-hour drive from Ottawa… in recent years, that industry has been supplanted by a growing tourism trade, which makes the most of the town’s historic infrastructure. Today, many of Almonte’s former mills have been retrofitted and converted into adorable shops, museums and gourmet restaurants.
