The Charlestown Historical Society's 2011 Calendar brings you many of the finest paintings of Charlestown scenes as well as several historic 19th century photos of fascinating life in the Charlestown of old.
Information about each month's paintings and photos is provided including the location and identifying the artist and historical significance, if any. Along with the magnificent images of Charlestown scenes, the descriptive material with each painting makes this a wonderful keepsake for Charlestown and neighboring residents. Of special interest for 2011 is the photos and paintings and corresponding information regarding the Charlestown Cornet Band (late 1800s), the Charlestown Union Association (started 1849 to track down horse thieves), the Aldham Store and Post Office, and the Rees Paper Mill.
A full page map of Charlestown Township on the back cover indicates the location of each month's subject or the location and direction faced by the artist creating the image.
13 Months - The 2011 Calendar includes January 2012, so you can note 2012 appointments before the end of the year.
Information about the Charlestown Historical Society and a directory of Township Offices and Officials are also included.
The 2011 Calendar may be purchased in person for $12.00 at the Charlestown Township Office above the Devault Post Office at 4030 Whitehorse Road, at the CHS table at this November's General Election at the Elementary School, and at the November 3, 2010 fall meeting of the Historical Society.
If you prefer, the calendar can be mailed to you. The price including mailing is $14.00. Click here for Mail Order Form
