Moving to Town

Looking for rental apartments in Canton, IL? You'll find rental houses, duplexes for rent, and townhouses for rent here - many of which are along the Spoon and Illinois River, immortalized by poet Edgar Lee Masters in the Spoon River Anthology.

Be sure to come equipped with the kind of information most landlords require today: your ID, credit report, and bank statements or W2s.

Neighborhoods

Main Street: The perfect spot for those who enjoy being able to spend time enjoying the great outdoors as well as a number of downtown Canton attractions such the gorgeous Lakeland Park, Canton Memorial Stadium, and the weekly farmer's market. Here you can find a nice mix of both rental apartments and single family homes, occupied by renters and owners.

Walnut Street: This is the perfect spot for nature lovers who will enjoy exploring bike paths and walking trails along the Van Winkle Lake.

11th Street: Located adjacent to the stunning Canton Lake, this peaceful neighborhood offers everything from single family homes to mid-sized and smaller apartments for rent. Peaceful tree lined streets and the nearby bike paths of Big Creek make this neighborhood a solid draw.
