  History

  Main Street in 1909

One of the New Hampshire grants, St. Albans was chartered by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth on August 17, 1763 to Stephen Pomeroy and 63 others. Named after St. Albans in Hertfordshire, England, it was first settled during the Revolution by Jesse Welden. The war, however, delayed further settlement until 1785, when many others began arriving. Farmers found the rich, dark loam suitable for cultivation, as well as for the raising of cattle, horses and sheep. The city produced butter and cheese in great quantities.[6] It also became known as "Railroad City," home to a major depot, operations center and repair shop of the Vermont and Canada Railroad.[7] When the city was incorporated in 1859, it had an iron foundry, a manufacturer of freight cars, and a large number of mechanic shops.[8]

The northernmost engagement of the Civil War, known as the St. Albans Raid, occurred here on October 19, 1864. In 1902, the city of St. Albans was incorporated, comprising two square miles (518 hectares) within the town of St. Albans. Today, it is a tourist destination noted for its Victorian and Craftsman style architecture built during the railroad era, when over 200 trains a day passed through.[9] St. Albans is a research target for genealogists, as European immigrants heading for the United States would sometimes land at Halifax, Nova Scotia or Montreal, then take a train through the border crossing here. The National Archives (NARA) lists for St. Albans cover the period 1895-1954.[10]

  Culture

St. Albans is called "The Maple Syrup Capital of the World," and in late April sponsors the annual Vermont Maple Festival. The festival includes many different food-related contests, as well as a footrace from Swanton, 8.2 miles (13.2 km) to the north.[11]

  Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 2.0 square miles (5.3 km2), all land. The city is surrounded by the town of St. Albans, with its lush farmland across gently rolling hills. The city is drained by Stevens Brook.

St. Albans is crossed by Interstate 89, U.S. Route 7, as well as Vermont Route 36, 38, 104 and 105. It is about 15 miles (24 km) from Vermont's border with Quebec.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
