The tradition, culture, and history of the Deep South are always on display in picturesque Canton - one of Mississippi's most unique and majestic cities. With its renowned arts and crafts community, turn-of-the-century town square, historic buildings and homes, and dazzling special events, Canton offers visitors a year-round, homespun celebration of its past and future.

Reflecting the city's rich heritage are Canton's great columned mansions and its majestic Greek Revival Courthouse surrounded by one-of-a-kind shops in splendid 19th Century buildings. Few cities rival Canton's penchant for preserving its colorful history and sharing its strong sense of community.

Canton's proximity to Mississippi's capital and the state's largest metropolitan area, and its renewed emphasis on preserving history, culture, tradition and sense of community have made this city of the South a premier destination for visitors from across the country. Located just 20 miles north of Jackson and 10 miles from the historic Natchez Trace Parkway, and the Ross Barnett Reservoir, Canton is accessible from the north and south on Interstate 55.

With all of this, and so much more, Canton is a great destination for any shoot. So head to Canton, we love the company!
