In 1785 Captain John O'Donnell arrived in Baltimore with a shipload of goods from Canton, China. He purchased 11 acres and called his plantation Canton. In the 1800's Canton became heavily industrialized and populated with Polish, Welsh, German, and Irish immigrants who worked in the various industries through the mid-1900's. Today, Canton is an upscale waterfront neighborhood featuring the Korean War Memorial at Canton Waterfront Park, O'Donnell Square with its shops, bars and restaurants, and the historic American Can Company (previously Norton Tin Plate and Can Company) which has been transformed into a collection of delightful restaurants and shops. Enjoy Lively Canton!

The Maryland Korean War Memorial lists the names of Maryland citizens who died in the Korean War, along with the names of Marylanders still listed as missing in action, on a large granite ring which also includes a history of the war & map of Korea. The US Flag, POW/MIA Flag & Maryland Flag are all part of this respectful memorial which honors our soldiers.
Canton Waterfront Park & the Korean War Memorial are located along Boston St. & the harbor, between Potomac St. & S. East Ave. The park has lovely views of the harbor. Across the harbor is Fort McHenry & to your left you can see US Navy ships docked at the Clinton Street Marine Terminal. You can walk the Waterfront Promenade around the harbor to the park or from the park to the Inner Harbor. The park also has recreational facilities including a boat ramp & fishing pier. Nearby are several terrific resraurants that are BHG Local Favorites: Langermann's Southern Inspired Fresh Kitchen, Edgar Allen Poe-themed Annabel Lee Tavern & Restaurant, & Jasa Kabob Authentic Indian Cuisine.
