The City of Canton is the county seat of Stark County, Ohio. Located in northeastern Ohio on the Nimishillen Creek, Canton has a population of just over 73,000 people. Once a major manufacturing center, Canton in recent years has focused on increasing its service economy. Redevelopment projects in the 30-block downtown area have helped restore historic buildings, including a former Carnegie library, and created a 3-block arts district of studios, shops and galleries. Canton today has a diverse mix of local employers, including Malone University, Belden Brick Company, and poultry producer Park Farms.

Canton Overview

Although Canton’s date of incorporation as a city is uncertain, it seems that industrial development occurred mainly after the Civil War. In the 19th century, iron and steel production and watchmaking were prominent industries. The Hampden Watch Manufacturing Company and Dueber Watch Case Company employed thousands of workers between the late 19th century and the 1930s. The Timken Roller Bearing Axle Company opened its Canton plant in 1901. Though still headquartered in Canton, Timken has reduced its workforce substantially in recent years. ATM and safemaker Diebold, Inc. began its Canton operations in 1872. Other long-standing Canton firms such as the Hoover Company and LTV Steel (formerly Republic Steel) have closed plants or moved production in the 21st century, contributing to a general manufacturing decline. Retail, healthcare and education have become more prominent as economic sectors, and dairy farming and poultry production are also key industries.
