Fort Albany

Referenced in Drums Along the Mohawk probably another name for Fort Frederick on State Street hill (1676-1789?).

Submitted by Cliff Lamere, Albany, NY:
"I have only heard of two dates for dimantling the fort; 1784 which is before the Common Council decision to tear it down, and 1789...We know that the land on which the fort rested was deeded to St. Peter's Episcopal Church in 1790 "

Fort Albany circa 1763
