What was once a landmark restaurant in Canton will soon be a place where visitors can take part in a growing downtown scene.

The former Peter Shears restaurant closed in 2012. The building is now owned by H2 Huth and Harris Wine Merchants, who converted it into a bed and breakfast.

Co-owner Whitney Harris says the basement will be a place where guests can enjoy wine, beer, and tapas. 

We’re looking forward to being a part of the whole Canton revitalization. We feel that they’re at the beginning of what could be a great upswing for that whole city and we hope that we can contribute to that.

Co-owner Patrick Huth says a room could cost anywhere from $200 to $500 per night.
