A Small Town with a Big History
The area that is now St. Albans seems like an average small town. The truth is, though, that there is nothing small or average about its history. Our town’s history dates back thousands of years to Native American tribes who lived, farmed, hunted, and fished here. Archaeologists have located artifacts that date between 9,000 and 13,000 years old. This leads many experts to believe that St. Albans is one of the oldest continually-inhabited areas of West Virginia.
