his soc slate2Items available for purchase include limited edition lithographs of the Canton Viaduct, old maps of the town, several books by local authors (Patricia Johnson, George Comeau, and Christopher Oates), and original slates from the roof of the Paul Revere barn. These slates have an image of Paul Revere’s home in Canton and an inscription of authenticity. The barn, which is being restored as part of the Paul Revere Heritage Site, was constructed in 1845 by one of Revere’s sons, Joseph Warren Revere.

The Canton Historical Society is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve the history of Canton. The society acquires and preserves collections that reflect the town’s rich history, which goes back to the drafting of the Suffolk Resolves, the birth of the modern railroad, Paul Revere and the development of the copper industry, the Ponkapoag Indian Praying Town of 1657, and so much more. So come out to visit on December 3, 10 or 17 and support the preservation of the stories of the men and women who contributed so much to our town and country.
