Historical Society celebrates all things Maple with Sunday event

NORWICH – The Chenango County Historical Society will host its first-ever Maple Festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot adjacent to the nearly completed CCHS Research Center, 43 Rexford St.



Thanks to a row of seven maple trees located on the museum’s property, people will have a chance to experience a number of historic maple harvesting techniques, from wooden buckets and sumac spiles to tin buckets and the modern use of plastic tubing, according to CCHS Director Alan Estus.

There will also be several examples of the maple syrup boiling process, including a wood-fired cauldron and a flat, wood-fired evaporation pan, said Estus, who added a number of historical society volunteers and local maple syrup producers will be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have.
