Albany Heritage Tourism

AHTAlbany was settled by the Dutch more than 400 years ago when Henry Hudson's ship, the Half Moon, first sailed up the river that now bears his name. Over the past four centuries, Albany has grown from a small Dutch settlement into New York State's Capital City in the heart of burgeoning Tech Valley.

Though Albany has undergone massive physical and social changes over its long history, our commitment to preserving and celebrating our heritage is stronger than ever. The sites and attractions listed below highlight aspects of Albany's rich historic and heritage resources.
