Decked for the holidays

By

historical society

Come explore your local history at the Canton Historical Society. This month, the society is paying tribute to its forefathers who helped make Canton what it is today. A lovely Christmas tree is on display with ornaments naming these families, such as the Shermans, the Dunbars, the Endicotts, the Reveres, the Gridleys, the Drapers, and so many more.

A fireside table is set for a holiday tea with china from the James Bazin family. The table is from the Doty Tavern, where American rebels gathered in 1774 to discuss principles leading to the Declaration of Independence.

While visiting and viewing the many exhibits on display, how about picking up a holiday gift of Canton history? There are limited edition lithographs of the 1850 Canton Viaduct, old maps of the area, and several books on Canton history written by local authors. The museum will be open from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, December 14.
