Visit us on Sundays at the Farmer's Market!

This summer we have a rotating program schedule for you to enjoy at the Canton Historical Society's Barn Exhibit.   One of our board members, Lee, has spent countless hours preparing this exciting programming for you.   If your kids don't know what a typewriter is or you have never heard of a Thaumatrope, now is your chance to experience the answers to those questions. 

Come check out the fun!
