Canton, a pleasant and rapidly growing residential community with light manufacturing is situated just 18 miles southwest of Boston, far enough away from the big city to provide residents with a laid-back, homey feeling of community, but close enough for a tolerable commute. Canton enjoys a prime location, offering easy, direct access to the state's major highways (including SR-128/ I-95, I-93, SR-138, and SR-24). Commuter/passenger rail is available with two stops in Canton: Canton Center and Canton Junction, as well as Route 128 in Westwood. Bus service is also available.
Spending weekends at home is a real pleasure in Canton! Many of the town's lakes, ponds, and wetlands are under state protection... including, the Eleanor Cabot Bradley Reservation, an 82 acre estate that blends open fields, woodlands and gardens in the shadow of Great Blue Hill. You might also enjoy the Mildred Morse Allen Wildlife Sanctuary and the Pequitside Farm, a town-owned, 38-acre conservation and recreation area which offers hiking, picnicking and cross-country skiing. Residents feel that the natural beauty of Canton, combined with the numerous town-sponsored spring and summer recreation programs set this town apart from all others. Canton lies at the foot of Great Blue Hill. The Canton River flows through the center of the town, linking a chain of small lakes including Bolivar and Forge Ponds and flowing into the Neponset River. For small-town charm, you'd be hard-pressed to find a town friendlier or prettier than Canton.
Canton's official web site provides links to important information, including an online database which you can access to see what value the city Assessor gives the property you are interested in buying and what its annual tax rate is.
