MBTA: Canton is located about 15 miles southwest of downtown Boston and can be accessed through the Providence/Stoughton Commuter Rail Line.
Canton earned its name in 1797 due to the early belief that Canton, China was on the exact opposite side of the earth. In 1801, Paul Revere chose Canton to be home to the nation’s first copper rolling mill. One of the oldest houses in America, the David Tilden House, has stood in Canton for nearly 300 years. This city is home to the headquarters of Reebok and Computershare as well as New England’s biggest coffee love affair, Dunkin’ Donuts.
