Canton Home Styles
Canton homes are like so many outer ring cities in Metro Detroit. You see as Metro Detroit grew the new growth was further and further away from downtown Detroit. They really started their subdivisions in the 1960's and the 1970's. Originally many of Canton's homes were ranches, colonial, tri -levels and quad levels under $200,000. Most of the homes built during that period sell in $150,000 to the $250,000 range.
Metro Detroit went through a slow down in the early 1980's, but in the 1990's the building boom took off again. That lasted until about 2006. Canton builders continued to build larger homes and larger subdivisions as time went on. The new construction homes now tend to be colonials and cape cods in the 2500 square foot to over 4000 square foot range. Vacant Land and lots have become too expensive to build ranches and small homes.
The township has been a carefully planned community with city planners making few exceptions to the master plan. Now you can find elegant brick colonials up to $500,00 in Canton (2013) down to small ranches.
Civilization arrived in Canton Michigan by the 1820´s. The first land grant in Canton was given to Philander Burd in 1825. In 1834 a six square mile area bounded by Joy Road on the north, Van Born Road to the south, Hannan to the east and Napier to the west became known as Canton, Michigan. Canton was named after a city in China due in part to the enhanced trade relations the United States had with China at that time.
Canton was primarily farm land throughout it's history. But among the corn fields and woods existed two small villages: Sheldon Corners and Cherry Hill.
Sheldon Corners was established in 1825 by Timothy & Rachel Sheldon after spending a night alongside the Sauk Trail (A.K.A. Michigan Ave.) under a large tree. They built an inn (which still stands) for other weary travelers heading westward.
Cherry Hill boasts Canton's first church-the Cherry Hill United Methodist Church and Cemetery, (1834). Cherry Hill was first known as "The Ridge", and was later renamed Cherry Hill Village. About 1865 after Abner Hitchcock built his inn and named it the "Cherry Hill House" after the abundant wild cherry trees growing there. In the 1940's Henry Ford built one of his "Village Industries" in Cherry Hill and adopted the Cherry Hill School as part of the Greenfield Village School System, offering the students many wonderful new opportunities.
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. Since the beginning? Canton was a farming community Farm. From 1925 to 1970 Canton was touted as the "Sweet Corn Capitol of Michigan." Canton became one of Michigan's first Charter Townships.
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. Today one large dairy herd still exists in Canton, run by descendants of another early family, the Gills.
The township is a culturally diverse city with many races and ethnic origins.
