Canton Rewind launched six months ago as part student project, part community history and part just plain fun.
So, to rewind on Canton Rewind, here’s what you have shared, commented on and clicked the most:
On one of the last days of school in 1976, student Lanny C. Lathem didn’t know he was capturing something rare on film.
Led by the marching band, cheerleaders and others in backs of trucks, long stretches of convertibles with homecoming royalty wind their way through Main Street during the 1960 Cherokee High School homecoming parade.
Take a look at fashion and cars of the time, as well as glimpses of the architecture and businesses along Main Street and how they’ve changed (or not).
t’s 1957: The 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Canton Elementary have moved into the old Canton High School building now that the new high school, Cherokee, has opened.
Although Canton Rewind is focused on Canton, this video of the first day of school in Holly Springs from 1940 is a treasure for anyone interested in local history.
