Since the early 1800's "Old Town" Kemptville was the centre for commerce and activity within North Grenville and the surrounding areas.
Downtown Kemptville has seen a significant revival over the last few years. The Municipality of North Grenville, along with business groups such as the BIA and the Chamber — along with private investors — have brought to life historic buildings and public spaces. Downtown has become a destination and a focal point for North Grenville's art, cultural, and heritage amenities, all spanning our natural waterfront.
