History

The town was named for St Albans, England.[1]

On October 19, 1864, St. Albans was the site of the St. Albans Raid, the northernmost Confederate land action of the American Civil War, which was basically, an enemy cavalry raid and bank robbery across the border from Quebec, Canada.[2] 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 town was incorporated in 1859, and the city in 1902.[3]

The lake monster "Champ" was allegedly sighted and photographed near there also. The creature in Lake Champlain was ostensibly given in 1609 by French explorer Samuel de Champlain, the founder of Quebec City and the lake's namesake, who is supposed to have been the first white man to record spotting "Champ" as he was fighting the Iroquois on the bank of the lake.[24] However, in actuality no such sighting was recorded, and it has since been traced back to a 1970 article.[25]
