DescriptionNestled between Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains, the town once described by Henry Ward Beecher as “a place in the midst of a greater variety of scenic beauty than any other I can remember in America” had anything but a placid history to match its serene setting. St. Albans was a notorious center for smuggling operations on Lake Champlain in the early 1800s and was an important link on the Underground Railroad.
Its rowdy days left behind, St. Albans is headquarters for the New England Central Railway, a production and distribution center for dairy products and a manufacturing center of such products as maple sugar, sugar-making equipment, medical technology equipment and ice cream.
