Albany has become the first city designated by the Oregon Heritage Commission as an Oregon Heritage All-Star Community. The city earned the designation by meeting at least 15 to 20 criteria, including heritage tourism and historic preservation.
“Albany fit the bill right out of the gate,” said Kyle Jansson, coordinator for the Oregon Heritage Commission. “They have the Albany Regional Museum, the Monteith House, a great preservation program with multiple historic districts, a strong Main Street effort with the Albany Downtown Association, and the city and community have made a commitment to heritage.”
