Welcome from the Mayor:

"On behalf of the Council of Greater Napanee, I wish to extend a warm welcome to visitors, residents and business to Greater Napanee, and all that it has to offer. Our website is a wonderful interactive tool that will help you to learn more about the programs, services and opportunities that Greater Napanee has within our borders.
We are pleased to continue to offer enhanced features and information on our website. Greater Napanee is proud of the services, opportunities and facilities we provide. We continue to grow as an "open for business" municipality, with convenient access by rail, road and water, rich agricultural opportunities, developed areas ready to accommodate small, medium and large manufacturing opportunities with access to residential, educational, health and recreational services to supply a living experience often not thought of for communities of our size.
We are steeped in a rich area of heritage and history. Our natural and built heritage is deeply connected to the history of the province. With miles of shoreline and rivers, to the arrival of the United Empire Loyalists on the Bay of Quinte, to the opening of agricultural lands around the Salmon River, Greater Napanee has been an active participant in Canada's development.
Book mark this page, use it often, but always know that both Council and staff are available to help answer further questions and concerns that you might have. Thank you for your interest in Greater Napanee.
Sincerely, Mayor Marg Isbester"

History of Town Hall 
The Napanee Town Hall, located at 124 John St. Market Square, was erected in 1856 and, today, is an enduring symbol of the development of local government in the 19th century. Town Hall is an early example of a combination town hall and market, an arrangement popular in Ontario before 1870. The noted Kingston architect Edward Horsey was responsible for the building's simple, yet civic image. With its dual function and its prominent location, this structure has remained a centre of community life. Several of Sir John A. Macdonald's documented speeches have been made here, including his campaign speech, presented by Macdonald from the balcony of Town Hall on January 13, 1882, as well as his last Town Hall speech on February 2, 1891.
