Canton, Massachusetts

Canton, MA has many spacious parks, boutique shopping and the atmosphere of a small town despite its placement near the thriving city of Boston. Canton was the site of several important American businesses, including the nation's first copper rolling mill, built by Paul Revere, and the town is also home to the Rising Sun Stove Polish Company, begun by American entrepreneur Elijah Morse, inventor of the pot-bellied stove. Currently, the town is home to the headquarters of Dunkin' Donuts and Reebok.

As of 2008, the town had just over 20,000 residents and features three elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. It is an intelligent, considerate community, which has worked hard to retain its small-town charm while still offering access to the greater Boston area, and is the perfect location for our Waterfall Hills property.
