The HaltonRegionMuseum is the original home of the Alexander family, Scottish immigrants who purchased the land in 1836. This enterprising and innovative family farmed the land for four generations. They were one of the first farms in the country to generate their own electricity and we like to think that we are continuing the Alexander tradition by generating a little electricity of our own with our exciting fall events. Alexander Family Farm Day offers something for everyone, whether your interest is in music, history, art, the environment or hiking.
