Bells Corners is an old Ottawa suburb in the western part of the capital. Bells corners has an interesting history. It was established during the early 1850s. The word “Bell” comes from the tavern owner Bell Hughes who owned his tavern on the location of today’s Bell’s Corners Public School. Today Bells Corners is home to over 10,000 people. The shape of modern Bells Corners began to take form in the 1950s when many of the homes in Bells Corners were built. Lynwood Village is one of the main residential areas where most houses were built during the 1950s and 1960s. Arbeatha Park and Westcliffe Estates soon followed to form the modern neighbourhood.
