Brief History

Originally part of what is now known as St. Albans Town, which was chartered on August 17, 1763, and one of only two towns to which Benning Wentworth gave a "saint" name, the other being St. George, and the two were granted on successive days. Initially incorporated as a village in 1859, then as a city in 1902. Because of its importance as a rail terminus and car shop, it has long been known as "Railroad City."

St. Albans City is the Shire Town (county seat) of Franklin County and is surrounded by St. Albans town, which is incorporated separately from the city of St. Albans.   The northernmost engagement of the Civil War, known as the St. Albans Raid, occurred here on October 19, 1864. [1]  [2]
