Plevna is a village in North Frontenac, in the county of Frontenac.

The village of Plevna was originally called Buckshot but the post office insisted on a new name. Locals argued about the name until one man said that the situation was nearly as bad as the situation that had existed for years at a town in Bulgaria that ended up taking the name Plevna. Most families agreed that it was better for the town to take an unknown name than a local family name other than their own.
