The historic Rinkert Building in downtown Canton was auctioned off Wednesday. At 10 stories, the more than a century-old office tower was Canton’s first "skyscraper."
The winning bid of just under a million dollars came from the Canton Downtown Land Bank. Michael Gill is director of the Canton Development Partnership, which includes the private, non-profit land bank. He says the building will likely be converted into residential use with ground-floor retail space.
