Quick Facts

Wikipedia has more about this subject: Albany, Oregon

Founded in 1848 by Walter and Thomas Monteith, named after Albany, New York. Was also named Takenah, started in 1849, near Albany, and the legislature gave that name to both towns, but in 1855, the name Albany was restored by the legislature. The post office was established on Jan 8, 1850, with John Burkhart first postmaster, and the name was changed to New Albany on Nov. 4, 1850. At this point the record becomes confused. James P. Millar became postmaster on Jan. 3, 1852, on which date the name was changed back to Albany.
