The original Amity was built in Canada in 1816 and a decade later it was the vessel that carried the first settlers to Albany. It arrived on the 24th December, 1826 and anchored in the bay near where the replica, which was built in 1976, is now located.
Albany Landmarks & Laneways
Our attractions are part of Albany's new Landmarks & Laneways project. Landmarks and Laneways provides a guide to Albany's history and its public artworks in the form of a map, available online and in print.
Founded in 1962, Albany Historical Society is a non-profit organisation, staffed entirely by volunteers. We are dedicated to preserving Albany’s unique history and managing two of Albany’s most historic buildings.
