It's been 150 years since the city of Alexandria was founded.

Just as those who built the foundation of the town came together in 1858, the community once again is coming together to celebrate Alexandria's sesquicentennial.


Many events have been scheduled to commemorate the city of Alexandria's history.

The kick-off is a grand parade on Saturday, June 7, which also marks the 125th anniversary of the Alexandria Fire Department.
