Canton Visitor's Guide & Interesting Links

The following information is provided for the convenience of visitors to the Town of Canton.  We have made every attempt to make the following lists as complete and accurate as possible.  Where a religious denomination is not represented in Canton, we have provided the nearest house of worship in neighboring towns.  If you find any information to be inaccurate, please contact the Town Clerk at (860)-693-7870. 


Thank you to the Cherry Brook Garden Club for the beautiful holiday balsam wreaths they made to decorate the Town Hall and other Town buildings!  Each one was fashioned by garden club members and no two are exactly alike. Unusual greens, berries, seedpods, dried flowers and other natural plant materials enhance each wreath.

Look for their 'handiwork" all around Town.  The Cherry Brook Garden Club also decorates the bandstand on the Canton Green, the Canton schools, Canton Library, and Town Post Offices.
