We grew up in this area and have had great experiences here. We recently moved back here from Indianapolis. It is close to the highway and only 15 minutes from major shopping centers. It is within an hour of Akron and Cleveland, as well. The schools are good and the people are friendly. We look forward to living here again.

The community is small but everyone knows one another. Everyone is kind and the schooling is amazing. It’s a small village that could use some more business especially in the abandoned shops.
East Canton is a nice quiet farm town, not far from shopping and essentials but still gives the country feeling.
