's Gravenmoer is a village in the Dutch province of North Brabant. It is located in the municipality of Dongen, about 3 km north of the town of Dongen. The village has a population of about 2190 inhabitants, including the farmlands to the north of the village.[1]

's Gravenmoer was a separate municipality until 1997, when it became a part of Dongen.[2] In the 19th century, the municipality consisted of two neighbourhoods, called Dorp or Straat ("Village", or "Street") and ('s-Gravenmoersche) Vaart ("Canal"). The former part is now the village of 's Gravenmoer, formerly also called 's-Moer.[3]

's-Gravenmoersche Vaart should not be confused with the contemporary village Vaart, which lies along the same canal a short distance to the south. 's-Gravenmoersche Vaart is now seen as part of the village of 's-Gravenmoer, although it is situated 1 km to the east of the village center.
