St Albans, Vermont, USA

The area was part of the French seigniory of La Douville from 1664 to 1763. The town was chartered in 1763 and organized in 1788. St. Albans village, set off and incorporated in 1859, became a city in 1897. Its location near the Canadian border made it popular with smugglers, who used it as a base between 1807 and 1812. The town was also a station on the Underground Railroad. It was the site of the St. Albans Raid, the northernmost engagement of the American Civil War, when on October 19, 1864, a small force of Confederate soldiers looted the town’s banks. In 1866 the Fenians, an Irish nationalist secret society, pledged to invade Canada and made St. Albans their headquarters prior to an abortive raid across the border. Maple sugar production is the major industry; tourists visit the city for the annual Maple Festival in April. Dairying and ice cream making also are important.
