Lecture goes back to turn of century for series finale
Laura Zeh, curator of the Canfield Historical Society, will conclude the group’s fall lecture series at 7 p.m. Thursday with a presentation that will highlight select pieces from the CHS collection.
It also will take a closer look at the period from 1896 to 1908 in Canfield.
The free lecture will give attendees the opportunity to see and experience a selection of seldom-seen collection pieces.
It will be at the Bond House, 44 W. Main St.
Admission is free.
Call 330-533-3458 for information.
The Bond House, home of the Canfield Historical Society, has a relatively small amount of space to display its collection, and many important pieces are therefore kept in storage.
Items featured at Thursday’s lecture will include an original 45-star U.S. flag that flew during the 49th Canfield Fair.
