Albany Township was established in 1824 from Asylum Township to the north. Albany Twp. is situated along the extreme southern border of Bradford County with Sullivan County. The land is hilly but not mountainous making for good farming conditions. The primary community in the township is called New Albany.

In 1853 the township lines were re-drawn to create Overton Township from the western portion of the town, making Albany Township smaller.

In 1858, Albany Township had five (5) school houses and two saw mills. The Wilcox Hotel and the Steam Oar Manufacturing company were also found in the township. The township also had a Methodist Protestant Church established as well.

Landowners

The residents have been sorted alphabetically by name to allow quick searching. No attempt has been made to combine names associated with multiple properties. If a person is listed with 2 or 3 properties the name will appear that many times in the list. In this way the transcription makes no assumption about whether the same person owned several properties or several residents had the same name. Remember: These are only landowners; any renters were not listed on the map.
