Collinsville – The Heart of Historic Canton
Canton’s downtown historic district, the village of Collinsville, is an attractive blend of late 19th/early 20th century architecture that developed during a time when the Collins Axe Factory was a thriving international manufacturer. Today Collinsville provides an eclectic blend of retail and dining along with river-based recreational and sporting activities. Collinsville is also home to a thriving fine arts community, recognized nationally for its annual Halloween celebration. The former Axe Factory complex offers tremendous potential for extensive mixed-use development in the near future.
