Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen
The township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen is a charming rural community located at the south-east corner of the County of Peterborough, on Highway 7.
It is home to agriculture, aggregate and mining, vast farmlands and the only nepheline syenite deposit in North America.
The Canadian Pacific Railway and the mining industry play integral roles in the community, both past and present. And both remain key contributors to the Township’s economy.
