Carleton Heights homes were developed after World War II. Most of the homes were not built until 1950. More homes were built in the 1960s and 1970s. The 'vet' homes were built on half acre lots and the owners sold off half the lot on which new more expensive homes were built beginning in the '60s. Most of the 'vet' homes are still there

Carleton Heights has a community centre which is adjacent to the Carleton Heights Curling Club and Carleton Heights Public School.
