Canton recently was recognized at the Georgia Downtown Association Conference for the 2019 Best Façade Rehabilitation Project for the Historic Jones Mercantile Building. The structure, adjacent to Cannon Park, was built in 1879 and most recently restored in 2017.
According to www.cantonga.gov, two years ago, selective interior demolition was done, with a new roofing system and exterior renovation work. More than $2 million was invested in the façade of the Historic Jones Mercantile Building. Here are some photos of the building throughout the years. More can be seen on the city’s website.
