              The Prudence Crandall School in the center of Canterbury

Join us as we welcome Kaz Kozlowski, curator of the Prudence Crandall Museum, and Kendall Smith, author and illustrator. Learn more about Prudence Crandall and the indelible mark she left on the  history of American education, race relations, and women’s rights. Those of us who live here in Canterbury, home of Miss Crandall’s famous and once-controversial academy for the education of “young ladies and little misses of color,” often think we know the story inside out. But it’s an ever rich topic and there’s always more to learn.

You’re Invited
We hope you’ll consider joining the Canterbury Historical Society. You can find a membership form on the About Us page of this website.

The Canterbury Historical Society’s regular monthly meetings are on the second Friday evening of the month unless otherwise noted. We don’t meet in July and August, when we take a summer break, although we often hold special events over the summer.
