Canton, Michigan City Info

On March 7, 1834, a six square mile area bounded by Joy Road on the North, Van Born Road to the south, Hannan Road to the east and Napier Road to the west became known as Canton.  Canton, like Nankin and Peking townships were named after cities in China due in part to the enhanced trade relations the United States had with China at that time.  Additionally, Washington D.C. had decreed that all new townships had to use names not previously used by another post office.  Today Canton is the only township of the three that uses its original name.

Canton was and continues to be governed by a Board of Trustees.  In 1874 the first township hall was built on the corner of Canton Center and Cherry Hill Roads.  It seated 400 people and was built at a cost of $700!!

In 1961 the population of Canton had climbed to 5,300.  Due to an increased need for services, the township proposed to the voters that Canton incorporate into a charter township, leaving all the previous powers Canton enjoyed formerly as well as granting new powers.  The Township could establish a police force, make traffic rules and broaden its health ordinances.  Canton became one of Michigan's first Charter Townships.   Today Canton enjoys a full service police and fire department, and accredited school system, professionally managed departments in the township hall, a full service library, a multifaceted recreational department, many volunteer and civic organizations and much more to serve the 50,000 plus people who now reside here.

Beginning with the first settlers in Canton, self sustaining farming was the main source of income.  The farm provided the necessary food and products for a family's livelihood, while the extra could be sold or bartered for goods, services or cash.  Oxen were originally used for working the farms, but by the 1850's draft horses began replacing them.

The typical Canton farm family owned six or eight milk cows, hogs for marketing, hens for eggs and meat and a few sheep.  Ice cut from nearby rivers in the winter kept food and milk preserved in the summer.  The abundant maple trees provided maple sugar each spring.

From 1925 to 1970 Canton was touted as the "Sweet Corn Capitol of Michigan".   Farmers within a days horse and wagon drive to Detroit took advantage of the opportunity and raised the profitable sweet corn to be sold at the Farmers Market.

Dairy farming was also important in Canton due to its central location.  At first farmers took their milk to local creameries located in the villages of Sheldon Corners and Cherry Hill.  From these creameries, Canton's milk was distributed to larger nearby communities, including Detroit.  Today one large dairy herd still exists in Canton, run by descendants of another early family, the Gills.
