North Glen­garry Town­ship of­fers am­ple op­por­tu­ni­ties to dis­cover roots, play out­doors, kick back, en­joy mu­sic, eat and spend your money.

The Glen­garry County Archives, lo­cated in the north­ern sec­tion of Glen­garry Dis­trict High School in Alexan­dria, is the largest repos­i­tory of his­tor­i­cal records in east­ern On­tario and con­tains the fore­most col­lec­tion of his­tory about Glen­garry County found any­where.

The Glen­garry Pioneer Mu­seum, in Dun­ve­gan, is true to its name, en­abling vis­i­tors to travel back to the pioneer era, and to get a blast from War of 1812 re-en­act­ments.

The town­ship boasts a wide range of recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties, such as golf cour­ses, the Tim Hor­tons Dome in Alexan­dria, are­nas in Maxville and Alexan­dria, a skate­board park and four-sea­son net­works of hik­ing and cross-coun­try ski trails.

Is­land Park in Alexan­dria is a great place to re­lax. Take a dip in Mill Pond, stroll along the path­way, watch the res­i­dent flock of Canada geese, have a pic­nic. Chil­dren can cool off in the splash park.

The area is be­gin­ning to be­come some­thing of a foodie des­ti­na­tion with the ad­di­tion of new spe­cialty restau­rants in re­cent years to com­ple­ment well-es­tab­lished eater­ies that serve up a var­ied menus.

At farm­ers’ markets, con­sumers can make a con­nec­tion with pro­duc­ers. The ex­pe­ri­ence will stim­u­late the lo­ca­vore in you. Meet the peo­ple who put baked goods, cheeses, fruits, veg­eta­bles and bread on your ta­ble.

All roads lead to Maxville for the Glen­garry High­land Games July 29 and 30. This is a spe­cial year as the vil­lage cel­e­brates its 125th an­niver­sary in 2016.
