Ottawa Area & Neighbourhood Information
Once a part of Nepean Township, and later the city of Nepean, Bells Corners was named after tavern owner Hugh Bell. Originally located on Richmond Road, most of Bells Corners was destroyed by fire in 1870, and slowly rebuilt. Until the 1950s, the area was primarily rural with little commercial presence. Although the rural charm has remained, Bells Corners has developed significantly, with a number of retailers and services along its main gateway, Robertson Road.
A suburban community located in the southern area of Ottawa, Bells Corners is an excellent neighbourhood to call home with a variety of schools, parks, and recreational activities.
