Chenango celebrates maple traditions Sunday

NORWICH – Saluting the longstanding history of maple production in the area, the Chenango County Historical Society is keeping on a tradition that pays tribute to the industry with the third annual Maple Sunday, set to take place from noon to 4 p.m. this weekend on the grounds of the museum on Rexford Street in Norwich.



The free, yearly event is a grand way to usher in the spring season by recognizing the contributions Chenango County has made to the maple production over the course of a century, as well as the innovative processes that have changed the face of the industry. From old methods of capturing tree sap through wooden tools and metal buckets, to the modern-day tubing system that makes maple production more efficient, the Historical Society will demonstrate the techniques that have made maple production a lucrative business in Chenango County.
