A bêche-de-mer station was established here way back in 1862 farming the rich waters. Port Albany as it was then known has been a part of the rich history of this area. A must see while you are visting are the graves of the only two Kennedy expedition members to be properly buried. We love Albanys history and enjoy sharing that with our visitors
