Canton in Wayne County, Michigan — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Cherry Hill Village
Community at the Crossroads
Cherry Hill Village originated in the 1830s
at the crossroads of Cherry Hill and Ridge Roads. As the economic and social center for the area, local families came here to trade at the general store, to pick up mail, to get shoes for themselves and their horses, and to attend school, church, picnics, dances, spelling bees and meetings. Today, much has changed. Look around and you will see our 19th century heritage making a contribution to the 21st century.
