Brief History

St. Albans Town 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. The town of St. Albans and the city of St. Albans were separated in 1902. References to "St. Albans" prior to this date generally refer to the town center, which now belongs to the city.

 The northernmost engagement of the Civil War, known as the St. Albans Raid, occurred here on October 19, 1864.  On Oct. 19, 1864, about 25 Confederate soldiers based in Canada raided the town of St. Albans, Vermont, killed one man, robbed three banks, and then retreated to Canadian territory.
