Welcome to Spencerville!
Spencerville is a charming and thriving community on the 416 corridor connecting Ottawa to the 401. Our beautiful village boasts many heritage buildings, including the Spencerville Mill and Museum, the Spencerville Town Hall, The old Spencerville Hotel, now a restaurant and gym, and three period churches. Our history also is evident in many beautiful historic stone houses sprinkled throughout the village. Riverside Park along the Nation River offers a picnic shelter for weary travellers and local families wanting to take in the beauty of the old stone Mill on our scenic waterfront.The Mill Park with it's gazebo is another attraction often used for weddings and markets.
Spencerville has long been home to many businesses – Home Hardware, The Stove Store, and Joe Computer to name a few. Artists and artisans have always been a part of the mix in this area surrounded by agriculture. We have two popular restaurants, Little Sisterz – an Italian Bistro, and Joe's Spencer City Bar and Grill, with music on Saturday nights. Both venues with wonderful outdoor patios. The Village Pantry, our busy General Store, is famous for their cinnamon buns and pizza, as well as take out meals. The Spencerville Legion is a hub for 'Toonie Thursday' music jams, dinners every other Tuesday and Wednesday night dart games.
Spencerville is home to one of Ontario's longest standing agricultural Fairs the weekend after Labour Day. It was established in 1855 and despite a Covid setback is still going strong. Other organizations include the Optimist Club, the volunteer Fire Department, Centennial Public School, a busy arena and Library. We also have a Pharmacy, LCBO, Gas Station and and Garage. Something for everyone.

This Place Matters: Spencerville Riverside Park
The most complex project to date for SBCC & partners is the Spencerville Riverside Park project.
In 2017, from June 14 to July 20, twenty-five participating project groups coast to coast competed for Canadians’ votes and donations in National Trust’s “This Place Matters” campaign, and Spencerville was among them. Through the combined efforts of members of SBCC, The Spencerville Mill Foundation, and you, the caring community, we met our goal and won $30,000. Through the crowd-funding process, your votes and donations contributed a further $26,000 (YES!) to the project – creating an attractive park space on the South Nation River by the Spencerville Mill & Museum.
