Canton

Canton North Carolina

Located less than 30 minutes west of Asheville is the Haywood County town of Canton. With the historic mill at its center, Canton boasts a quaint downtown on the Pigeon River with shopping and restaurants all within an easy walk. Visitors can take a short drive and see Cold Mountain, made famous by Charles Frazier’s novel of the same name and the subsequent award winning film. Take a walk along the Pigeon River Scenic Walking Trail or catch a football game at nearby Pisgah High School and you will see why Canton residents are so proud to call it home.
