As Camden's Mayor and on behalf of our citizens, it is my joy to welcome you to our Village. Camden is an historic small town smack dab in the middle of everywhere you want to be with ample opportunities for work, play and learning just a short drive away. (Oxford, Dayton, Cincinnati and SW Indiana).
Our past is rich and our folks are friendly. We’re home to businesses operated by the same families for decades, and others just starting up. We have a wonderful medical practice & facilities and a pharmacy right in the heart of town to take care of our community, and our Police, Fire and EMS Rescue Departments help protect and keep us safe.
We appreciate our heritage, yet we’re focused on building our future with new faces and fresh ideas. Front-porch sitters and entrepreneurs welcome!
If you’re just passing through, enjoy the beauty of our village and grab some lunch at one of our local eateries, or top off your gas at either of our fuel markets. If you need to stretch your legs, you can pick up a walking tour booklet at our Town Hall and learn about our fascinating history.
If you’re looking for a place to call home where you can make a difference, we’d love to be your neighbor!
Karen Moss, Mayor

About Our Village
HGTV's Hometown Takeover Contest
Earlier this year, the Camden Comeback committee (local non-profit that supports Camden's citizens and businesses) and others entered Camden in HGTV's HomeTown Takeover Contest. Thousands of small towns and villages were nominated so the competition is fierce. Because of COVID the contest has been put on hold, so the results were not announced and we have no information about their time. We still want to share with you this fantastic nomination video they produced as part of the application process. When and if the contest resumes, we feel confident Camden has as good a chance to win as any other town in the nation! Watch and listen as our Camden friends and neighbors describe our great little village.
