The Town

 
 

Located in between Ottawa and Montreal, in the Township of North Glengarry, Alexandria is a small town with a lovely history dating back to 1792….Father Alexander MacDonell, who would later become the Bishop of Upper Canada, began the town as Priest’s Mills because of the mill a few years after the war of 1812.

Alexandria was incorporated as a town in 1903 and in 1998 became a part of the new Township of North Glengarry. Alexandria is celebrating its 200th year Anniversary in 2019!

The current population is just over 10,000 residents. 65% of the residents use English as their dominant language.

This is Ontario’s Celtic Heartland, home of the Glengarry Highland Games, one of the largest Highland Games in the world, attracting over 50,000 people each year.

The St. Lawrence River is less than 15 minutes away for great boating and fishing. And the USA border is 40 minutes away in Cornwall.

The main street of Alexandria is adorable, with quaint cafes and small town businesses. Everything a family would want is in Alexandria…the Glengarry Hospital, elementary schools and the Glengarry District High School, Glengarry Golf Club, a train station accessing Ottawa and Montreal, indoor soccer dome and arena.

There is a weekly Saturday Farmer’s Market, the Stone Mill Vineyard and the Priests Mill Arts Centre highlighting the area’s history. The Friends of Glengarry Trails consists of 15 kms of groomed trails, cross country skiing and snow shoeing.

You are only 1 hour to either Ottawa or Montreal. The best of both worlds and the best of rural living and town conveniences!
