The city of St. Albans, Vermont, the county seat of Franklin County, surrounded by the town of St. Albans, which is a separate entity. It was named in honor of the town in Hertfordshire, England, by the same name. It was chartered in August of 1763 and settled during the American Revolution. While its economy was based on farming and raising cattle, sheep, and horses, it was also home to a major railroad depot, repair shop, and center of operations for the Vermont and Canada Railroad. It was the site of the St. Albans Raid, the most northerly battle during the American Civil War, in October of 1864.
