Administrative history

Fort Alexandria was established in 1821 on the west side of the Fraser River as a fur trade post and farm. It also served as a supply depot for the New Caledonia District. In April 1867, a new store was opened; however, by June of the same year, Quesnel had surpassed Fort Alexandria as the supply depot for the district. Fort Alexandria was subsequently reduced to a farm for supplying Quesnel and the region with produce. In 1881 the HBC relinquished its property at Fort Alexandria to private owners.
