Albany is a history and architecture lover’s destination. The city’s four historic districts include styles from the 1840s through the late 1920s. In fact, Albany has one of the most varied collections in Oregon. There are more than 700 historic buildings in three of the districts all located within an area of approximately 100 square blocks. Tour them on your own, or visit for seasonal celebrations such as the Interior Home tour in July and Christmas Parlour tour in December. Please visit Albany Visitors Association to view their publication “Seems Like Old Times,” which covers four of Albany’s nationally registered historic districts. It includes maps with suggested walking routes and detailed descriptions of the buildings you’ll pass along the way, plus a key to Albany’s architectural styles.
