Even with its many recent updates, many of the unique and beautiful bungalows and buildings once built for mill workers and managers are still intact. Homes were built around an older style of development, with larger lots and more frontage between the streets and homes. Canton’s neighborhood sidewalk system allows people to get from their house to downtown by foot, adding to the town’s quality of life.
