In 2016, the town raised $1.1 million to acquire the Belle Vue House and the property on Dalhousie Street. Robert Reynolds, the deputy assistant commissary famous at Fort Malden, constructed the residence between 1816 and 1819. Osborne said that the pandemic paused the plans that were there to make Belle Vue a delivery of income for residents while noting that the roof was modified in 2018. Belle Vue House is a structurally sound building but it needs a lot of work to look good again, but it has the foundations already in place to do so she said.
