B-4 2020 Cancelled

It is with out deepest regret that will have decided to cancel B-4 2020.   With the social distancing requirements we would need to comply with, it would be impossible to successfully put on such an event.   We are disappointed to need to make this decision but our utmost concern is to the safety of our community.  Thank you for your continued support of Canton Historical Society and we hope to see you at B-4 in September 2021.

History in the Making

Over the last few weeks we have been "stuck at home" while the state and country essentially shut down in order to lower the number of people infected and effected by COVID-19.  Many call these times historic and liken them to the Spanish flu of 1918.  There are differences in our ways of life as folks learn to communicate in new ways like video chats on Zoom, people work from home when they can, and health care professionals receive supplies from ordinary people 3-D printing parts in their homes.

As we grapple with the changes in our lives and every day social interactions, we at the Canton Historical Society understand the importance of compliance with the governor's executive orders regarding staying at home along with the continued importance of appropriate social distancing in the coming months.    We will update on our complete plan in the future but for now we have a few announcements. 

(1) The May 16th dedication of the Geddes Road state historical market is cancelled and will be postponed until a later date.
(2) The Canton Historical Museum, Bartlett Travis House, and the Barn at Preservation Park remain closed until further notice and until appropriate social distancing decisions are made.

As always we thank you for your continued support and hope you continue to keep safe.
