Does anyone know about the origins of the Compo Beach cannon. All I have been able to gather is that they were given to the town sometime around 1903 but other than that don't know ie: where they were made, when, and what location they came from before landing in Wesport? I grew up in thw town and spent my whole summers at the beach as a young'n.

We'll make pinecone bird feeders for our feathery friends, create insta-snow, build mini ice sculptures, and so many more amazing winter crafts.
