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
The Farmington Valley Model Railroad Society designed and built the first Collinsville railroad diorama in the late 70’s. It more recently redesigned using more modern landscape materials and 3D printers to depict building in their surroundings in more realistic detail. Their skilled work has created the current diorama which has proven to be an interesting and fascinating highlight of our exhibits. Below we have added the group’s newsletter for your interest in model railroading and their activities. They too are interested in gaining additional members to share in their activities. They can be reached at Informtion@cantonmuseum.org or at (860) 693-2793. Check out their Newsletter Here
