History of Albany NY

[AANY] Although French traders were in the area in the mid 1500’s, it wasn’t until 1609 that Dutch fur traders arrived and established a trading center and a fort. The first permanent settlement was founded in 1624 by 18 Walloon families, French Protestants who left the Spanish Netherlands seeking religeous freedom. The settlement was called Beverwyck until it was transferred to the English and renamed in honor of the Duke of York and Albany.
