From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia
Kinmount is a village with a population of approximately 500, located on the Burnt River in Ontario, Canada. The village is now part of the City of Kawartha Lakes. The village's hinterland covers large sections of both Haliburton and Peterborough counties for which it is a shopping and cultural centre. Prior to the formation of the City of Kawartha Lakes, Kinmount was the seat of Somerville Township.


The economy of Kinmount once relied on forestry but is now primarily based on tourism. The village is an important source of supplies for summer cottagers in the area and, consequently, becomes nearly dormant in winter. One of Kinmount's primary businesses and tourist draws is the Highland Cinemas — a first-run movie theatre with a movie poster and equipment museum.
The local post office, at 4078 County Rd 121, offers lock boxes and services one rural delivery route.


Kinmount was originally named Burnt River (a name now used by a nearby village), after the river which flows through the village. In 1859, it was renamed Kinmount by Mrs. Malcolm Bell, afterKinmount, Scotland.

So-now it’s our turn! What info can you add?
