Artists, authors bring town’s history to life

CORNWALL — When asked at the Cornwall Historical Society’s “Artists and Authors” exhibit reception how it all began, Curator Jamie E.O. Cantoni, like a true historian, goes way, way back. “It really started in 1844.”
With large blue eyes and complementary blue seersucker summer dress, Cantoni may have looked young among her guests, but she expertly commanded the scene with a beaming smile and warm greetings, like Kate Middleton among the people.

Stone walls are beautiful and tell a tale

CORNWALL — Rock walls, standing boldly against time and the elements all the while in a humble silence, can tell more of a story than one might think. Nestled into the landscape of what is now a forested Northwest Corner, many of the stone walls date back centuries to when the area was filled with agrarian pastures.
For Ron Hummel, outdoor educator and naturalist and a resident of Cornwall, the stone walls are quiet gems of insight into history and culture.

KENT — June can be a bittersweet month for teachers and students. School is over, vacation begins. But there are also the regrets that come with saying goodbye to friends and colleagues.

A longstanding Cornwall tradition finds itself in a new venue

CORNWALL — The opening may be more than a month away, but preparations are already in full swing for the Rose Algrant Art Show. 
For Cornwall residents, the art show is as much a summer tradition as going for a swim in Cream Hill Lake or picking up furniture and clothes at the Rummage Sale. 
Cornwall is known for its large artistic community, which has ties that go both hundreds of years back in time and thousands of miles around the world.

The church was built in 1826 as a result of a sectarian schism in Cornwall, but its pews and altar have since seen the assembly of multiple congregations.
