The Canton Historical Society preserves the history of Canton and is a non-profit research organization which holds rare artifacts which are unique to the Town of Canton's history.
The society recently had a barbecue which raised money for textile preservation.
The Board of Directors meets the first Saturday of every month and the Canton Historical Society is open to the public the 2nd Sunday of every month.
The members are volunteers and are encouraging new members to join.
Among the treasures that curators work to preserve are local papers back a hundred years, historic documents, artifacts, photographs and lithographs of historical people and landmarks that have shaped the town's and the country's history.
