Boston Metropolitan Airport was an airfield in Canton, Massachusetts, on the northeast side of Neponset St just southeast of the Neponset River. In the 1930s it had four gravel runways.[1] The May 1956 sectional chart shows one 2100-ft turf runway; the airport isn't on the December 1956 chart.[2][3]
