Canton Center Driving Tour

Canton Center is the birthplace of the Town of Canton, dating from 1738 when Mercy Holcomb Barber, widow of Samuel Barber, settled here with her four sons a year after Richard Case II came to East Hill as the town's first permanent resident. The Cherry Brook Valley widens in this area and has the best farmland in town, some of which is still cultivated. The General Assembly recognized the area as a distinct parish in 1750, incorporating the area as the First Ecclesiastical Society of West Simsbury.
