History of the
Canton of Crois Brigte
||Crois Brigte was established in the 1990's. Originally our canton
was part of the Canton of Hindscroft. But a local canton was
needed for Forsyth County. Thus, the Canton of Crois Brigte
was established in Forsyth County, North Carolina.

According to Mistress Sine ni Dheaghaidh,
the name was chosen because our newly formed canton was standing at
a crossroads so to speak. It was also significant because the name
of St. Brigit, which means "bright arrow" as well as "Exalted one".
She is the Goddess of poetry, prophecy and the arts. She is the
Patron of languages and the protector of smith craft. (blacksmiths,
goldsmiths, silversmiths etc.)
The Canton of Crois Brigte is no longer standing at those crossroads. Thanks to the hard work and dedication
of its early founders,
our Canton is growing steadily and doing its share of work within
our Organization. And each member is proud of the history of this
small yet hard working canton of Crois Brigte.
