Canton Historical Commission has instituted the Historic Preservation
Award program to recognize meaningful achievements in
historic preservation and to increase public awareness, appreciation, and
support for historic preservation throughout the town.
Formal recognition by Canton
Historical Commission celebrates preservation successes and provides a
means for the town to honor and showcase the outstanding achievement in
historic preservation, restoration, rehabilitation and beatification of
Cantonís historic resources.
Each May, during Historic Preservation week, the Historic Preservation Awards will be presented to individuals, organizations or businesses in town whose contributions demonstrate outstanding achievements in preserving the heritage of Canton.
