The last few months have had difficult challenges for all of our citizens and communities. After a long closure we are pleased to announce that the re-opening of the Canton Historical Museum will be on Sunday, June 28th. We will be open from 1 to 4. We will be following State re-opening guidelines for Phase 2. This will require the following changes to our previous operating procedures.
We look forward to welcoming visitors and members who support the Museum in its efforts to communicate, preserve, and improve our historic facility. We appreciate your needed support. If you are unable to attend the Museum, donations to the Canton Historical Society can be sent to 11 Front Street, Canton CT 06019
