The Delhi Historical Society (DHS) will open the Cannon House located at 47 Main Street in Delhi on Saturday, September 25 from 10 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. To celebrate the Village of Delhi's Bicentennial, exhibits will include memorabilia from the sesquicentennial celebration fifty years ago. 

At noon, DHS will host a dedication ceremony to name the education room in the Cannon House after the late Mary Jane Henderson, who was a staunch supporter of DHS and integral to its success since its inception in 2008. 

From 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., Mary Jane Henderson's final compilation of stories, Now Hear This: What's My Line, A Unique Collection of Original Donkey and Horse Stories will be on sale. Proceeds from the sales will be split between DHS and the Little Brook Farm Sanctuary in Old Chatham, NY. 

The Delhi Historical Society works to promote history and historical research in Delhi. New members are always welcome to join DHS.  Those interested in joining the effort to preserve Delhi's rich history can become a member by sending a check for $10 made payable to DHS to 5 Elm Street, Delhi, NY, 13753.  Any donation is appreciated and helps the mission.  

The next DHS program is scheduled for Saturday, October 2 in partnership with the Village of Delhi's Bicentennial Committee. It will include a walking tour of Delhi pipe organs. The tour will begin at the First Presbyterian Church on Clinton Street at 10:00 a.m. and will conclude at St. John's Episcopal Church on Main Street at 12:00 noon.
