Historical society seeks new board members

The Canton Historical Society, a volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation of local historical information and resources, is currently accepting letters of interest to fill three board member positions.   

The Canton Historical Society offers valuable opportunities for individuals interested in helping keep the history of the township alive, officials said. Once appointed, these volunteer board members will begin a three-year term starting in January 2022.  

“The Canton Historical Society is excited to welcome new board members to help safeguard Canton's historical identity and build on all of the educational and preservation successes that our organization has achieved,” said Bill Tesen, Canton Historical Society president.  “It's important to continually integrate fresh ideas to help effectively retain Canton's rich past for future generations to come.” 

Canton Historical Society board members will help with the preservation of artifacts, relics, documents and historic sites. The society will provide historical education to members and the public through educational, cultural, social programs and projects. 

Interested individuals should email a brief resume to Canton Historical Society President Bill Tesen via email to no later than Thursday, Oct. 15. Any questions may also be directed via email to
