Heritage Center

The Canton Area Heritage Center provides a place to showcase artifacts and to capture Canton’s compelling history of 190 years. The Heritage Center Museum focuses on the industries that have been established in Canton, over time.

We are currently requiring masks for both visitors and staff, per CDC guidelines.

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!
