original township ledgers from the 1920’s and 1930’s reveal some tight
budgets. There were roads, schools and a cemetery to maintain along with
what seemed like endless repairs to the Town Hall. The wood stove in the
Hall needed steady vigilance in the winter and, at times, people were
working on the outdoor toilets and building a tool shed for road
During these same years, local carpenters built six very large wood
benches, some of which are still in the Hall. One town craftsman built
the sturdy table which is still used by town officers for meetings.
Although this table has seen better days and is scarred by scrapes and
gouges, it’s as strong now as the day it was built.
Today, courtesy of the Canosia Historical Society, that table has a
heavy piece of glass over the top…adding real class to a memorable piece
of old furniture.
