Canton


Author(s):
Abstract:
Canton, which lies 18 miles west of Asheville in Haywood County, is OUR STATE magazine's featured Tar Heel town of the month. It was a paper mill town during the 20th-century, and with the paper industry declining, town leaders and citizens are seeking new ways to attract visitors. Things to do there include the Pigeon River Scenic Walking Trail, the Rough Creek Watershed, downtown shops, and the Colonial Theatre.
