Founded in 1806, Canton is the smallest of the valley towns, but is now also the fastest growing. It is basically made up of four villages: Collinsville, a center of a lively artist community, with its spectacular examples of early Victorian architecture, Canton Center, a small village along Cherry Brook Road, North Canton where several of the newer subdivisions are sprouting up, and Canton Village, the retail district along Route 44 with a variety of commercial services, antique shops and The Artist's Guild art gallery. Canton blends historic charm, rural, suburban and retail in distinctive fashion.
