ALEX HOUSE: Fall a busy time at Alexandra House

Fall in Crescent Beach is a special time as the leaves change color, the sky is that intense blue  and Alexandra Neighbourhood is humming with activity. If you’ve never been to Alex House it’s a great time to visit our unique and historic buildings and see what we have to offer.
