Plaque Text

Begun about 1812 this house, one of the finest country residences of the day, was the home of the Honourable Alexander Fraser, Quartermaster of the Canadian Fencibles during the War of 1812. Fraser became Colonel of the 1st Regiment, Glengarry Militia, in 1822 and served under Sir John Colborne in Lower Canada during the Rebellion of 1837-38. Elected in 1828 to the Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada, he was appointed in 1839 to the Legislative Council. From 1842-49 he was the first Warden of the Eastern District, now the counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry.

Joshua Bowen (1879) was the second owner of Fraserfield. Captain Peter Grant was the original owner of the land and gave it to his son in law Alexander Fraser who built Fraserfield in 1818-21. Expanded in 1848-51. The first land owner had 800 acres. The house is declared historical. Commissioned art was completed in 2008 of Fraserfield from a photo from circa 1900.
