Downtown Canton Walking Tour

This morning Chris and I attended a wonderful walking tour of the architecture of downtown Canton given by M.J. Albacete, Director of the Canton Museum of Art.  The tour was sponsored by the Main Branch of the Stark County District Library.

What a wonderful tour!  Albacete is extremely knowledgable about both architectural styles and Canton history.  At one point, I turned to Chris and said, "There is no end to this man's knowledge!"

Here are some of the photos I took on the tour:
