Glengarry County Archives Celebrates Official Opening

ALEXANDRIA, June 17, 2022 – Wednesday night the Glengarry County Archives celebrated its official opening, despite having been quietly open since July of 2020. However, with regulations changing due to COVID-19 the Archivist, Allan MacDonald wanted to wait until the new location could be honored properly.

The Glengarry County Archives are the largest archives in Eastern Ontario, housing over 300 collections covering every aspect of Glengarry’s past from the pioneer period to the present. Such a large collection required a special location, which is why its new home at 28 Kenyon St E, in Alexandria is perfect, as it is the oldest building in Alexandria with a rich history of its own.
