Chatham-Kent is the largest Municipality in South Western Ontario and the 12th largest in Canada.
.In 1998 the County of Kent and the City of Chatham were amalgamated to form the Muncipality. It is the home of the Affordable Lifestyle.The Thames River runs through Chatham Kent to Lake St. Clair while the Sydenham River flows through Wallaceburg and Dresden. Chatham-Kent is located in the middle of the Great Lakes and has several Kilometers of shoreline along Lake Erie and St. Clair making it desirable waterfront community.
Its location produces mild temperatures and is often referred to as the Banana Belt of Ontario. As a result, we have 9 area Golf Courses and the golfing season usually extends to 9 months
The Municipality is home to several historical sites. The Battle of the Thames, an Historical Battle between the British and the Americans on October 4/1813 during the war of 1812 took place on the banks of the Thames River near Historic Downtown Kings St. in Chatham.
Chatham-Kent is steeped in Black History. Uncle Tom's Cabin near Dresden which was a safe haven for many slaves who escaped from the US. The village of North Buxton was the location of the largest black population of freed slaves after the Civil war and is still the location of the Labor Day Homecoming weekend which bring visitors from all over the country. There are many interesting Museums and original sites to visit.
