Interesting Facts about St. Albans

The Tremont House and City Hall

A large four-story hotel, the Tremont House, built in 1820, once occupied the site where the St. Albans City Hall now stands. On October 10, 1864, Lt. Bennett Young of the Army of the Confederate States of America and two other soldiers, all in civilian clothes, came into St. Albans by train from Canada. They rented rooms at the Tremont House.  Pretending that they were businessmen or tourists, they spent the next nine days scouting St. Albans in preparation for the raid of October 19, 1864. They were interested in finding out the locations of the banks, whether or not there were Union troops in the area, where they might get horses and what was the best route back to Canada.  The Tremont House closed in 1881 and the building  became the Glen Falls Shirt Company.  The building burned in the great fire of 1895. The present building, City Hall, was built in 1897 when St. Albans became a city.

Looking south on North Main Street in 1864.  This is what St. Albans looked like at the time of the Raid.  Most of the buildings in this picture burned down in the great fire of 1895.
