The purpose of Heritage Advisory Committee is to advise Council on heritage matters including architectural, material culture, historical and natural heritage. This can be accomplished through conservation or restoration initiatives, education or heritage designation of built environments.
The Committee, working with staff resource persons and the North Grenville Historical Society, may advise and recommend, provide knowledge and expertise, facilitate the work of the organizing body and act as a liaison between politicians, organizational staff, members of the public and other stakeholders with regard to matters of architectural or historical significance.
The following properties have been designated under Part 4 of the Ontario Heritage Act as being architecturally and/or historically significant, by the Municipality. Click on the links for our towns/hamlets below to view the Statements of Reason for Designation.
In 2006, the Municipality developed a series of heritage walking tours for the historic downtown area of Kemptville, as well as the various hamlets. In 2010, some of the tours were updated. The tours highlight both the architecture and historical significance of the buildings. Visit the Explore North Grenville Website for all the details on these walking tours.
