About Albany, MN

ALBANY Township, settled in 1863, organized in 1868, and its city, incorporated in January 20, 1890, and reincorporated in 1958, have a name that is borne by the capital of New York and by townships, villages, and cities in 17 other states. The first settlers in the city were the Obermiller and Schwinghammer families in section 22 in 1862; Isador Obermiller, married to Maria Schwinghammer, was the first postmaster in 1870 in Halfway House, their home, which also served as a hotel. The site was first called the Schwinghammer Settlement and then Two River Mission Settlement of Two Rivers; when the Great Northern Railway came in 1871 and built a depot a half mile away, it was renamed Albany and platted in 1872; the first building at the new site was Carl Herberger's general store.
