*Area, Population and Density rankings refer to Albany’s relative position among Vermont’s 255 civic entities (9 cities, 242 towns, 4 gores and grants). Complete rankings are here.

Originally Lutterloh (after the first named grantee, Colonel Henry Emannuel Lutterloh, Washington’s Deputy Quartermaster General of the Continental Army), the town was renamed Albany in 1815, though there is no clear trail as to the choice of name. Some say there is a connection to Ira Allen, while others maintain it has to do with New York having once proclaimed the area west of the Green Mountains to be part of Albany County, and the word thus had a familiar ring. One has to wonder if proponents of that theory have noticed that this town is on the east side of the Mountains. It narrowly missed being named Adams, after our second President.

Utilities

Notes about utilities:

  • One electric or phone company indicates that company serves the entire town. More than one of either indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • A listed cable company MIGHT mean the entire town is covered, but not necessarily. More than one listed indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • Unless your area is one served by Vermont’s only gas utility, your only option is bottled gas (any dealer).
