City Information & Statistics
Vankleek Hill is a community in Champlain township in eastern Ontario, situated 94 kilometre (58 miles) east of Downtown Ottawa.
This agricultural based community became a thriving community in the 1890s and still retains many of the buildings and structures which were present then. This is reflected in the fact that Vankleek Hill is the Gingerbread (the wood carvings on the eaves of one's roof) capital of Ontario.
It was named after Simeon Vankleek, a United Empire Loyalist, who settled there near the end of the 18th century. Relatives report that he left his farm in New York (Poughkeepsie, New York area), in fear of soldiers from the Revolutionary War. He hopped on his horse and rode as far as he could until he got to what was to be Vankleek Hill, where the horse dropped dead. The town has a population of 1,996 and the local newspaper is The Review.
