Man About Canton: Feb. 15 Preview

Did you know … MAC was very interested in the recent story by Canton Citizen columnist George Comeau, entitled “Tea Cups in the Attic.” The story was about a teapot and the 26-piece tea set that was given as a gift to Mrs. John Everett in 1847 and is now in the collection of the Canton Historical Society. What was really interesting to […]
