About the City of Albany:
Albany has always been a city that proudly celebrated its heritage. From a brief record of the centennial celebration in 1786, several volumes have been written on the bi-centennial (1886) and the Hudson Fulton celebration (1909). Since that date although only booklets and pamphlets record many of the events, available detailing can be found in the daily newspapers, which are preserved on microfilm. In 2009 the city joined the entire Hudson valley in observing the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage on the Half Moon up the river. The city also recognized the travels of Robert Fulton’s steamboat Clermont which was the first steamboat to travel from Albany to New York using steam power.
