Canfield Township 2019 Comprehensive Land Use Plan

Canfield Township is taking on the task of developing a Comprehensive Land Use Plan to help guide the community into the future.

This slide show was presented on April 10th, 2019 at the first public forum held to discuss with residents and interested parties what a comprehensive plan is and what progress the planning committee has made thus far.

Explore the slides to review the timeline of the project, learn current trends in Canfield and the region and see initial planning goals. Most importantly, we want to hear your opinion. Throughout the presentation there are various poll questions to gauge public opinion on local issues. Weigh in and let us know your feelings on the community and what you would like to see going forward.

Canfield Cemetery

Dean Hill Cemetery

Canfield Township Cemetery Sexton - Bob Burkett 330-503-1083 
Dean Hill Cemetery - 7421 N. Palmyra Rd., Canfield, Ohio 44406

In 1822 a Baptist church was organized at the house of David Hayes near the site of the present cemetery. In 1827-28, influenced by a visit from Walter Scott, most of the members were converted to the new Disciple faith.  A church was erected soon after on land purchased from William Dean. A burial ground was provided at the site with existing grave markers dating to 1837. The congregation grew so rapidly that in 1848 some of the members withdrew to form a second Disciple church in the village of Canfield. By 1867 most of the original founders had died and the dwindling congregation decided to unite with the church in town. The old frame church was abandoned but remained a landmark until it was razed in the late 1880’s. Today only the carriage step stone remains as a reminder of the church location. The Dean Hill Cemetery continues to serve as a final resting place for the descendants of its founders and for the Canfield community.

We can help you dig a little deeper in finding the final resting places of famous folks, friends and family members.
