Welcome to Camden!
On behalf of the citizens of our fine community, welcome to Camden. We hope you have a wonderful visit. Camden is located in southern Preble County, and conveniently located at the corner of Highways 127 and 725. We are a wonderful, laid-back small town with easy access to Hamilton, Dayton and Cincinnati.
A friendly community, Camden is home to several businesses and employers, a strong school district, churches, parks, community services and a hard-working, dedicated citizenry. Please look around our website, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us. Enjoy your visit!
Camden was recently featured on the “History in our own Backyard” series. This video highlights some of Camden’s interesting history.

Historic Town Hall Renovation
The Town Hall was built in 1889 and was renovated and re-opened in 2017. Long a prominent building and the center of activity in town, it had been damaged extensively by a fire in 1988. The picture on the left above was taken in the early 1900s. The middle and right photo are architect’s rendering for renovation planning.
This photo on the left is the town hall today. The building currently houses the Village Offices, Police Department and Camden Archives. When the second phase of renovations is complete, the building will house a large banquet/activity room on the third floor which will be used for special occasions. We are so pleased that the building has been renovated and restored to its original beauty and can once again serve as a meeting and gathering place for the community.
