The Landmark Ornaments commemorate New Canaan’s past and present buildings,
as well as favorite institutions and family events such as caroling on God’s Acre.

The Landmark Ornaments commemorate New Canaan’s past and present buildings, as well as favorite institutions and family events such as caroling on God’s Acre. For more than forty years, a dedicated group of volunteers has made each one. Faith Kerchoff, who chairs the “Crafty Tuesday” group of artisans designs the set of ornaments each year. The thought, care and work that goes into the process is astounding. The uniformity seems impossible for something hand-painted, and yet each is perfect. The Museum is the grateful recipient of both the annual additions to its tree as well as the proceeds from all the ornament sales.

Thanks to the Crafty Tuesday group, including: Faith Kerchoff, John Kerchoff, Judy Gilroy, Yvonne Hunkeler, Tracey Karl, Anna Kolikowski, Toni-Ann Vittoria, Gunilla Lawrie, Tucker Murphy, Rosa Palladino, Charill Pierce, and Judy Wiley.

Ornaments are $25 a piece. Both current year and past years are available for sale in the Town House.
