Welcome to Spencerville!
Spencerville is a unique and thriving community located on the 416 highway corridor south of Ottawa. Our beautiful community boasts a number of heritage buildings, including the Spencerville Mill and Museum, several period churches, the Spencerville Hotel (now a restaurant and gym), and the town hall. History also speaks through the many historic houses sprinkled throughout the village.
Spencerville has long been a home to small business (Home Hardware, Watt's Small Engines, Joe Computer to name a few). Artists and artisans have always been part of the mix. In the culinary department we have two restaurants, Little Sisterz and Joe's Spencercity Bar and Grill. The Village Pantry has long offered delicious take-out meals, famous cinnamon buns and pizza. The Spencerville Legion has wing night on Fridays and dinners on Tuesdays. In the spring, we have two local sugar bushes – Hunter's and Drummond's – offering delicious breakfasts and maple syrup.
Spencerville is also host to one of Ontario's longest standing fairs, The Spencerville Fair, which celebrated its 163rd year in 2018. Other local organizations include the volunteer fire department, the Optimist Club, three local churches and our local public school, Centennial 67.

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.
