Canton's O'Donnell Square offers a more informal look at local history. Since the 1800s, the square has evolved from downtown marketplace to desolate group of canneries to an active entertainment destination. Today, the square's lively bars and pubs attract the city's up-and-coming working population. The brick buildings and nearby churches provide a stately ambience that adds to, but doesn't discourage, the square's fun nightlife activity.
