Canton is a picturesque suburb located 18 miles southwest of the city of Boston. The town was founded in 1650 in an area that the Native Americans called “Punkapoag.” It was originally a section of Dorchester and later of Stoughton and was incorporated as “Canton” in 1797. The name came from a mistaken notion by a town leader that his community was located directly across the globe from Canton, China.
Canton today has a solid industrial base along Route 138, but it is largely residential. Its school system has received national honors and the town offers abundant recreational facilities for its residents. The community has its own town forest, acres of conservation land, tennis courts, baseball fields, ponds, a skating rink, and four golf courses. It is also home to the beautiful Blue Hills reservation and ski area, which attracts skiers and snowboarders from across the state.
Canton residents have direct access to Rtes. 128, I-95, and 24 and the town is on the MBTA’s Providence/Stoughton commuter rail line. Amtrak service from Boston to New York is also available in neighboring Westwood.
