The Canton Public Library offers a variety of resources to help you with genealogical or historical research. On June 1st, we will be adding a new database to help you learn more about the history of places around the United states: Historic Map Works. This resource offers over 1.5 million land ownership maps to help you track the geographic and human history of cities and villages over hundreds of years.
Tip: Look for maps of the Canton Area by searching for Western Wayne County. See who used to own the land that the library now sits on by comparing modern map overlays.
