The opening of the Erie Canal in 1825 brought settlers from New England. Settlers were met by heavy forests and many animals, including; bear, wolf, deer, raccoon, and fox. Early settlers engaged in self-sustaining farming. Farm-produced food and products provided the family with sustaining food and extra goods could be sold or bartered for goods, services or cash. The typical Canton farm family owned six or eight milk cows, hogs for marketing, chickens for eggs / meat and a few sheep. Much of the local food and produce was sold to locals or trucked to the City of Detroit down Michigan Avenue.
