Bells Corners West

Description

Bells Corners West is bounded by the Greenbelt to the north, south, and west, and Moodie Drive to the east. Originally named after Hugh Bell, Bells Corners West was mainly rural until the 1900s. By the 1950s, the neighbourhood had become a commercial center for the outlying rural areas. The area was first part of Nepean Township, and later the City of Nepean until amalgamation with the City of Ottawa in 2001.
