Canton historical society has productive first year
Thursday, December 06, 2012 2:38 AM
Members of the Canton Historical Society gathered for a holiday potluck dinner on Thursday, Nov. 29, at the community center. The group celebrated its first year of existence, having been formally organized in April.
A holiday potluck meal was held on Thursday, Nov. 29, at the Canton community center for the members of the Canton Historical Society.
President Kathie Haynes shared, "We believe our work is important to the future of Canton while celebrating and honoring our past. We now have close to 40 enthusiastic members."
Since being organized in April of this year, the historical society has been working on several local projects, including opening the Mitson House Museum for summer tours and working with contractors to prepare to restore the train depot.
Haynes explained that the goal is to develop a Canton Area Museum in the Canton Depot.
Another major project members took on this year is to videotape and document stories about area residents' personal histories, the local area history and discovering the stories in Canton and beyond. "We encourage anyone who is interested in being part of our ongoing video documentation to please contact the Canton Historical Society," Haynes said.
The next meeting of the historical society will be held in the new year, on March 21, at the community center.
