History of Canton Junction
The History of Canton Junction is the story of the railroad in Canton from the early 1830's to the late 1980's. During these early years, the railroad was the town's link to distant markets and sources of raw materials and was a major factor in the growth and economy of the town. At a time when horse-and-buggy travel severely restricted the distance one could travel comfortably, the railroad allowed Canton's citizens to easily travel to Boston, and to the entire southeastern area of Massachusetts. As the automobile gained popularity, though, the love affair with the railroad was downgraded to that of a nuisance, something that blocked local roads and occasionally killed or maimed people who strayed onto the tracks. Once grand railway stations were abandoned and demolished due to lack of patronage. The demand of commuter rail service over the last 20 years has rekindled interest in the railroad and another cycle of the railroad's history in Canton has emerged.
