The purpose of the Albany Historical Society is to discover,
preserve, and disseminate knowledge about the history of the Albany CA area. We encourage local residents to share
their memories and knowledge of the past through story telling events and have begun to create a historical walking path
in Albany using plaques commemorating important places and people. We hope to see you at one of our events soon.
