Corner of Route 44 and Lovely Street.

Route 44 began as the Indian's Northwest Path. It became the Hartford to Albany Road during the French and Indian War in order to move troops and equipment. In 1984, it became the Albany Turnpike, a toll road.
1776 House was an old home converted into a tea room on the site of the present day dry cleaners at the corner of route 44 and Lovely Street, circa 1950.
Cherry Park was located partially in Avon and Canton off Lovely Street. It started as an agricultural fairground, then became a trotter racing course, and finally a midget auto race track, circa 1900. It closed in the 1950's.
The Mills/Everest House, 1796, on the corner of Route 44 and Lawton Road was demolished in the early 2000's for commercial development. It was taken down and carefully reassembled at another location in Connecticut (2001).

Canton Show Shop was directly behind the 1776 House on Lovely Street. The barn is still there today, but another business occupies the site, circa 1950.
