Canton, MN

Canton, Minnesota, located along U.S. Highway 52 is the first city in Minnesota along this major north-south route.

Canton was originally founded in 1879 as a stopping point for the railroad. At first its legal name was "Boomer," depicting how fast it was built, but because another town in Minnesota had the same name, "Boomer" was changed to Canton.

Canton's population has remained constant through its history at a little less than 400. For many years its economy was based on agriculture as was so many rural Minnesota cities. This has changed, however. Increasingly more of its citizens are young families, who like the small town flavor of Canton, the affordable housing, closeness to various large cities that offer employment and easy access to a major highway.

Amish Community

The farmland around Canton, with its rich soils, was the first area of choice by the local Amish community, who began to settle just north of the city limits in 1974. That community has grown steadily and now encompasses many acres. Buggies are a common sight in town and in the countryside. U.S. Highway 52 between Prosper and Preston is a designated Amish Buggy Byway.

Historic Church

A major stop in the area is the historic Lenora Methodist Church, built in 1856, just four miles north of Canton in the Village of Lenora. Constructed from stone quarried locally, it has carved (hand) pews, a pot belly stove, an old pump organ and kerosene lamps! Regular worship services are at 2 p.m. on Sundays, May through December. It is the oldest church (original) in Fillmore County.

Hunting and Fishing

Hunting and fishing in the Canton area are major attractions. There is an abundant pheasant, deer, raccoon, and turkey population as well as great trout streams throughout the area.

Snowmobiling

When there is enough snow, finely groomed snowmobile trails run through the area and city.

We in Canton want to welcome all of you to our city and if any of our business places can help to make your stay in our area more enjoyable, please feel free to stop by any one of them to ask questions. We hope you enjoy our part of Historic Bluff Country.
