Historic Canton Walking Tour

The tour covers 50 sites in approximately two miles of walking. One of the first places you'll see is the Canton Village Park Historic District which includes 21 buildings. The tour begins at the Canton Free Library on Park Street where additional touring information can be found. The picturesque campus of St. Lawrence University is in the heart of Canton. Established in 1856 as a theological school for Universalist Church ministers, the University became a general liberal arts college in 1859. It has been coeducational longer than any college in New York State. Richardson Hall and Herring-Cole Hall are on the National Register.
