Just for Fun: Local History Projects & Places

Here are a few interesting projects that have been done, and places to visit, that relate to the history of SUNY Canton and North Country New York.

  • Librarian, Rachel Koenig, has created a Historypin journey about the history of SUNY Canton. Click through antique photos of our old campus and view the locations on the associated map! Exploring the beginnings of SUNY Canton may help you feel more connected to the campus, and you will certainly see how far we've come.
  • In 2013, librarian Mike Magilligan interviewed dozens of WWII veterans living in the North Country. The project was called Veterans' Living History, and a report of the project can be found here. World War II images and the audio interviews from the project can be viewed on YouTube.
  • Visit the SUNY Canton archives at the library to explore more about the history of this campus.
