The Canton Area Heritage Center provides a place to showcase artifacts and to capture Canton’s compelling history of almost 200 years. The Heritage Center Museum focuses on the industries that have been established in Canton, over time. We also honor notable people who’ve made a difference in civic, fine arts, medical, sports, and philanthropic fields.
Discovery Days at the Museum
Kids are invited to discover more about their home community by participating in Museum BINGO with parents, caregivers, grandparents and neighbors. During our regular hours, Fridays (10-12), Saturdays (10-2), and Sundays (1-4), ask for a BINGO card and start learning historical facts this summer.
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!
