CANTON – early settlers had hoped the area would become a Chinese silk center and so named the town after the Chinese seaport. Canton which is the county seat, never made it with silk, but with the rail line from Marietta and the Canton Cotton Mills it became an important textile town. The mills became famous for creating the popular material known as brushed denim. Marble deposits are all around this area and the mining and finishing of marble was one of the first industries in the 1800s. Still very rural the area is enjoying new growth and development. New and resale homes are available, and there have been several recent large new home subdivisions, River Green to the west, and Great Sky and Laurel Green to the north. Canton has big plans underway for a 700 acre industrial and technical park that will bring money, jobs, and growth and make it much more than a bedroom community.
