Alexandria Reviews

2 reviews
It is a small town in population in the winter. The summers we have a lot of tourists who usually have little to no respect for locals and their property. The views from the mountain tops is amazing and the exciting trails are well maintained and marked. Apples, syrup, and hay are our main exports. We have no store in town or post office etc. We have a church, two town halls, a highway department, a volunteer fire department, and a library. Our police department is made of one sometimes active duty special officer, who is chief in another town, and a chief who is in town about once a week. We have a lot of breaking an entry crime, minimal drugs, a lot of vehicle crimes.

Gets worse every year. People move in and try to change our town to suit how it was in Massachusetts.
