About the Plaza
Centennial Plaza, developed with the help of $12 million in funding from the citizens and businesses of Canton, occupies a two-acre city block formerly known as Market Square. It sits a short walk from the site of the former Hupmobile dealership where Ralph Hay, who also owned the Canton Bulldogs, organized a meeting with other owners of professional football teams that led to the creation of what has become America’s most popular sport.
