The city of Canton is located in Cherokee County, the northwest part of
Georgia, about 40 miles outside of the capital, Atlanta. According to the
United States Census Bureau, its population is around 23,000, with about 75% reporting to be Caucasian.
The median household income of those in Canton is around $43,000, more
than 19% being below the poverty line, which is about 5% above the national
average of persons living in poverty.
The city boasts a historic downtown, which has preserved many structures
and documents dating back to before the Civil War. Initially, Canton was
in the middle of Cherokee land, so not many settlers visited. When gold
was discovered in Georgia, however, settlers flocked to the river. Federal
troops eventually removed the Cherokee who had not moved away to a reservation,
after which a permanent courthouse was established. After going through
a number of names, the city was left with the name, Canton. This was a
result of group of inhabitants who were attempting to replicate the silk
industry of Canton, China. Though the silk industry was never hugely successful,
the city did become an important manufacturing center.
The history of Canton can be further researched at the
Cherokee County Historical Society, which provides housing and literature for all historical items worthy
of preservation. If you so desire, the town has created a walking tour
which that highlights the notable sites and shops by local artisans. The
city also puts on various festivals to celebrate Canton history and many
national holidays. The Cherokee Arts Center places special emphasis on
remembering the Indian roots of the city.
Crime and Injury
Fortunately, Canton crime statistics have showed a downward trend in the
last few years. There were about 83% less violent crimes committed in
Canton than the
national average. The property crimes committed were also significantly less; Canton had
35% less property crime than the national average. Currently there are
around 100 sex offenders who live in Canton, making the ration of residents
to sex offenders, 100:1.
Though Canton has a decreased rate of crime, there are still many incidents
that cause personal injury outside of violence and offense to property,
such as vehicular accident. The state of Georgia has reported that in
2008, approximately 1,583 injuries were sustained out of 4,751 roadway
accidents. Fifteen of these were fatalities, with five related to alcohol.
