Historic Town full of Southern Charm!

The historic center and County Seat of Cherokee County, the city of Canton is full of small-town charm with all the city conveniences. This area has been coined, “Where the Metro meets the mountains” for good reason, Canton is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains with the beautiful Etowah River running through its center. It is quickly becoming the county’s medical center with the new state-of-the-art Northside Hospital Cherokee and tons of satellite medical office parks being constructed.  Downtown has undergone a major renaissance in the last decade from a manufacturing mill town to a lively town square with unique locally owned shops and sought-after restaurants. 

From historic homes and buildings converted for modern living, established neighborhoods with large lots, family communities with loads of amenities and new construction for the 55+, you will find plenty of distinguished properties in Canton, Georgia.
