The Canton High School building was designated as a Mississippi Landmark and individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The masonry facade stretches for almost 400 feet and contains 62,000 square feet. The two story building consists of a central corridor on each side and an auditorium and gymnasium that extends from the back. The primary structure of the building consists of concrete and masonry load bearing walls, concrete and wood flooring, and wood roof framing. The walls and ceilings are covered with plaster, while floors are concrete, ceramic tile, or wood. The school retains its original plan and a high degree of integrity in regard to the materials, design, and craftsmanship. Master planning for development, exterior masonry, roofing, and drainage work have been completed. Plans are currently being developed to convert the school to provide residential living units.
