The Canton area was developed from the plantation of merchant seaman, John O’Donnell, in the late 1800’s by his son, Columbus O’Donnell, William Patterson and Peter Cooper. The land was sold for expanding waterfront industrial uses and housing to support the blue-collar workers. During the early 1900’s European immigrants settled in the area, most notably, Welsh, Irish, German and Polish.
More recently, as industry moved out, new housing and marinas have been developed along the waterfront.
