What has happened.

In February 2020, a lease was signed for the vacant space of 135 Dwight Street. What was a dry cleaners had been gutted and left bare for us to see and as we toured this blank canvas we were filled with hope. Three excited, idealistic, and motivated people started blueprints and floor plans that had been years in the making. Just weeks later, amidst lockdown, stress, and what seemed to be endless uncertainty, we thought the passion project of The Cannon had been lost.

However, by the grace of our own perseverance, we continued on with construction ourselves, with the help of family and friends whenever we needed a hand. Painting, building, and developing this project with our literal blood, sweat, and tears to create something that 18 months later, has been completed. The opportunity for state and government aid was unattainable for us, but we have continued on with our own resources as well as the generosity of family and friends.
