Canton – Baltimore City Maryland 21224gary62018-10-17T14:22:04+00:00
Canton is a trendy neighborhood located along Baltimore’s outer harbor in the southeastern section of the city. John O’Donnell was the first person to transport goods from Canton to Baltimore and named his plantation after it. The neighborhood was a major port but then became industrialized and would eventually experience a residential revival. Canton is generally centered around O’Donnell Square, a park that houses several bars and restaurants, an art gallery, a former fire station and the very first branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. There have been many new developments in the recent years – the Canton Waterfront Park, Maryland Korean War Memorial, the rehabilitated American Can Company, two marinas and a public boat launch, the DuBurns Soccer Arena, and in 2013 Canton Crossing – a brand new shopping destination opened. Canton is roughly two miles east of Baltimore’s downtown district.
