Historic Canton Square, Canton, MS

4 of 15

More than 75 colorful buildings dating back to the turn of the 20th century line this magnolia-and-oak-filled square. They’ve made it onto the National Register of Historic Places, as has the commanding 1857 Greek Revival courthouse. (The Gallery, across Liberty Street from the courthouse, still has a drawer marked “Opium” from 100 years ago, when it was a pharmacy.) The town’s southern charms lure visitors, most notably during the twice-annual Canton Flea Market Arts & Crafts Show.
