Canton Area Information and Resources
A Brief History of Canton, Michigan:
Today, Canton is comprised of several residential neighborhoods as well as two distinct communities:
- Sheldon (a.k.a. Sheldon’s Corners), which is a historic section in the south part of the township on U.S. Highway 12. It was named after Timothy F. Sheldon, who purchased the land in the area in 1842
- Cherry Hill, located in the west part of the township at the intersection of Cherry Hill Road and Ridge Road. A new urbanist neighborhood located within this community has gained quite a bit of recognition in recent time.
Canton was first created by an act in the Michigan Territorial Legislature in March 1834. It was formed using portions of Plymouth Township. The community got its name from a city in China by the same name. To celebrate the community’s heritage, the Canton Historical Society and Museum was formed in 1982. Today, the 36-square-mile community offers purchasers looking for homes for sale in Canton plenty of job stability, thanks to its diversified employment base.
