Albany, New Hampshire

Albany, New Hampshire, is a lightly-populated town located in Carroll County just northeast of Lake Winnipesaukee.  With only about 750 residents, Albany is small in population, but larger-than-life when it comes to stunning views and breathtaking vistas.  Situated on the southeastern edge of the Appalachian Mountain Range, Albany is rife with thick pine forests, towering mountain views and wildlife galore.  Gateway to the Mt. Washington Valley, tens if not hundreds of thousands of tourists pass through Albany each year on their way to the Great Northern Woods, The White Mountain National Forest, the Kancamagus Highway or any of the other spectacular attraction of northern New Hampshire.

Albany was originally called Burton when it was first chartered by Benning Wentworth in 1766.  As a token gesture of thanks, the town was named for General Jonathan Burton, a general who fought the French in Nova Scotia in 1745.  The town was renamed Albany in 1833 and incorporated at the same time.  The name, for reasons lost to time, was changed to Albany apparently to reflect the new charter of the New York City to Albany Railroad, granted that same year.  Albany remained a hunting/trapping/trading community until the advent of the automobile in the early-mid 1900’s.  When more families could afford modern vehicles of transport, the whole of northern New Hampshire opened up for families to explore and Albany was directly in the path of these new visitors driving up Route 16.  Soon roadside motels and cottages started appearing followed by diners and gift shops.  While Albany’s tourist industry never really took off, it remains smack-dab in the path of the heavily traveled route from southern New Hampshire/Northern Massachusetts to the sprawling forests and majestic mountains of the North Country.

Albany holds a view of Mount Chocurua as it overlooks Lake Chocurua that is quite simply unrivaled.  Albany is also home to a 120-foot long covered bridge that spans the Swift River, just south of the popular tourist destination, Conway, NH.  The eastern end of the Kancamagus Highway (sometimes called the Kancamagus Scenic Byway) begins in Albany and follows the Swift River for over 20 miles before ending in Lincoln, NH.  The natural beauty that can be enjoyed as you travel along this road is simply breathtaking with its waterfalls, views of mountains and valleys, camping and hiking areas, as well as swimming and picnicking spots which have backdrops worthy of postcards.  If you are ever fortunate enough to visit this region, bring a camera with plenty of film and batteries.

Albany is a member of SAU #9, but has so few students that all of them are tuitioned at nearby Conway, NH.  With such a small student body, there are no plans to construct schools in Albany.

Homes are sometimes available in Albany, one of the most beautiful towns within this lovely state, but you’ve got to grab them fast.  If you’re not “in the know”, you’ll probably miss out on the opportunity to become a part of this great community.  To buy a home in the Granite State, it’s important to have someone on your side, someone who will look out for your best interests.  For the wonderful state of New Hampshire, that person is Jim Miller of Bean Group.  Call Jim right now at (603) 801-3987 and find out what homes are available here in NH – it’ll be the best move you could make.
