There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit than to surround yourself with dozens of beautifully decorated Christmas Trees. Every year, the Canton Historical Museum opens its doors for small businesses and organizations in the neighborhood to donate Christmas trees that will be displayed. Visitors are welcome to stop by, view the trees, and purchase a ticket for a chance to win a Christmas tree. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Gallery of Trees, you still have time!


The Gallery of Trees is open from 10:00am-8:00pm on weekdays and 10:00am-4:00pm on weekends. The last day to see the trees is on Sunday, December 11th. The drawing for the trees will also be on Sunday, December 11th shortly after 4:00pm. Show us your favorite tree on Instagram! Tag us @makeitcanton for a chance to be featured on our page.
