Back in 1834 when Canton Township was incorporated, it was a farming community known as the "Sweet Corn Capital." Even today, as Michigan's 11th largest community, the western edge of Canton is farmland and maintains its sense of history and connection with the land.
Today's Canton is largely a residential community offering all types of housing from quaint condominiums to estate homes on large lots ... and everything in between. The three-mile stretch of Ford Road in Canton is home to countless stores and diverse restaurants for every taste. Canton is easily accessible from I-275, I-94, Ford Road and Michigan Avenue and is conveniently located just 20-minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
