One Response to Mitson House Museum – Canton Historical Society

    The Mitson Museum and Library was the first library I ever visited as a child living in Canton in the 1980s. I have wonderful memories of climbing the old stairs and sitting in the “children’s” section where Mrs. Dotzenrod would read us stories. I’m sure I would have even more appreciation for the history of my hometown now that I’m older. Does the museum have regular hours? How can people get involved or donate?
