Theme, "The Resilience and Industry of Canton”

Since its founding in 1825, Canton has capitalized on hard work, the talents and entrepreneurial spirit of its residents to bring prosperity and pride to the community. Even in the face of devastating natural disasters (i.e., fires, floods and tornadoes) and downturns in the economy, Canton has shown its resilience and drive and come back from the fires like a Phoenix to rise again! The Canton Area Heritage Center will provide a place to showcase artifacts and to capture our compelling history of 190 years for those who follow us.
