An official Path Through History Site! For nearly 30 years TAUNY has been collecting, documenting, preserving, interpreting, presenting, and celebrating the folk culture and traditional arts of the North Country. The TAUNY Center, located in a historic building in downtown Canton, is the headquarters of Traditional Arts in Upstate New York. The mission of TAUNY is to document and develop public programs about the cultural heritage of the North Country. At our gallery, we offer changing exhibitions about the history and culture of the region, as well as a wide range of public programs. The gallery also includes the North Country Folk Store, in which we sell traditional products made by North Country artisans. We tell the story of the region's history and ongoing traditions.
