Staff The Glen­garry County Ar­chives just got a lot richer, thanks to a do­na­tion from the United Coun­ties of Stor­mon­tDun­das-Glen­garry.

At its Feb. 16 meet­ing, the coun­ties do­nated five maps and eight vol­umes of his­tor­i­cal doc­u­ments to the ar­chives, which are lo­cated at the north­ern end of Glen­garry District High School in Alexan­dria.

The his­tor­i­cal doc­u­ments will be for archival pur­poses and pub­lic ac­cess.

Val­ued at $60,000 the do­na­tion in­cludes an 1823 hand-drawn map from Sur­veyor Browne, de­tail­ing a new county road to ex­plorer and fur trader Si­mon Fraser’s Mills at St. An­drews.
