[ARCHIVED] Canton Historical Museum To Celebrate Grand Re-Opening

A special ribbon cutting ceremony is also scheduled to take place promptly at 6:30 pm and light refreshments will be available during the event.

The Canton Historical Museum will reopen to the public with a newly-installed exhibition of "Life Unplugged: Connecting Canton in the Past," featuring communication tools through the ages. The public is encouraged to stop in and learn how people communicated in Canton's rural past any time during regular Museum hours: Tuesdays from 1-4 pm; Thursdays from 5-8 pm; and Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm.

Highlights from the restoration project included renovations to the existing floors, foundation and foundation walls. In addition, all incandescent lighting was converted to energy-saving LED lights.

Celebrating its 130th anniversary, the Canton Historical Museum is located at 1022 S. Canton Center Road on the corner of Canton Center Road and Heritage Park Drive in Canton, MI. Still in its original location, the Canton Historical Museum was previously used as a one room school house. Formerly known as the Canton Center School, this historical site started out in 1840 as a log cabin school house but burned down in 1883 and was rebuilt with bricks the following year. Admission to the Canton Historical Museum is by donation.

Don’t miss this fun way to discover and learn about the Canton community's rich history and heritage. For additional information, visit or call 734/397-0088 for group tour details.
