Canton, Kansas is a town of 775 inhabitants in 1950 (829 in 2000), midway between McPherson and Hillsboro, in the eastern part of McPherson County. Between 30 and 40 percent of the people living in its trade territory in 1950 were Mennonites, most of whom came originally from Karolswalde, Poland, and were now affiliated with the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite (see Lone Tree Church). The members of the Emmanuel Mennonite Church (General Conference Mennonite) were of the same background. Here also is located the Spring Valley Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA).
