The first gravel road in Albany ran from near the Town Jetty along the Terrace to as far as the Empire Theatre. A small piece of gravel road was made from the top of York Street to the large rocks opposite the cemetery as this was heavy sand.
Albany Landmarks & Laneways

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.
