Are you looking for that true Southern city? You know the one – narrow and elegant false-front buildings lining downtown, brick sidewalks and narrow streets, cozy front porches for those sultry afternoons … A place so filled with gorgeous, historic architecture that it could easily be mistaken for a movie set. If so, then Canton, Mississippi is the ideal location for your next apartment.
Canton is about 25 miles north of Jackson and is the county seat of Madison County. The vast majority of the city is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the iconic courthouse is one you’ve probably seen many times – it is a favorite for photo exhibits depicting the south. The historic courthouse was built in 1855, nearly 20 years after the town was incorporated.
Find your Canton apartment now and start enjoying the beauty of the city – as well as the myriad things to do. Be sure to visit the Canton Flea Market, considered one of the best flea markets in Mississippi. Canton is also part of the Mississippi Blues Trail with historic markers located at important sites throughout the city. Arts on the Square is an annual event that features artists and live music.
