Located in northeastern Ohio, the City of Canton provides its residents with many benefits of big-city living while maintaining its charm as a medium-sized Midwestern town. Canton is home to many well-known national landmarks like the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame, the William McKinley Presidential Library/National Monument, and the National First Ladies Library and Research Center.
In addition to being the birthplace of American professional football and many important figures in our nation's history, Canton is also home to a vibrant arts community. The Canton Symphony Orchestra, Canton Ballet, and Canton Museum of Art give residents a place to experience art and culture from around the world, and our growing local artists' community is quickly becoming well-known as a dynamic presence in the region.
World-class hospitals and five area universities provide excellent care and an enriching learning environment while the serenity of our public parks and nature preservations allow Cantonians time away from the hustle and bustle of city living. With the cost of real estate estimated at less than half of the national average, Canton is as affordable as it is enjoyable.
Whether looking for a place to call home, a place to locate your business, or simply a place to visit for the weekend, we welcome you to Canton!
