The St. Lawrence County Historical Association will hold their annual Holiday Open House on December 1st from 4 to 8 pm. Festive floral arrangements, refreshments, holiday music, and family history will fill the air at this holiday event which is open to the public. The Canton Garden Club provides fresh greens, floral arrangements, and early American Christmas tree decorations like gingerbread, dried apples, and lace.
The Holiday Open House will include live seasonal music provided by a variety of local musical talent: the Canton Central School Vocal Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Kimberly Busch; R. Merrie Song & Friends, performing early American carols; local musician John Danis; and the Noteworthy Handbell Choir.
This year, Adirondack Santa will be available upstairs in the Silas Wright House from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, waiting to hear children’s Christmas lists. There will also be crafts for young visitors to make and cookies for them to decorate during this time.
New this year is a Holiday Gift Auction with unique gift items up for bid throughout the evening. And the SLCHA Museum Store is full of local history books for young and old as well as old-fashioned toys and games.
The St. Lawrence County Historical Association is located at 3 E. Main St., Canton. Parking is available in back of the SLCHA, next to the museum’s main entrance.
