Welcome to New Albany, Ohio.
New Albany is located in Franklin County, Ohio, United States. It is located just Northeast of the state capital of Columbus.
The land that was to become the city was founded in the center of Plain Township in 1837 by Nobel Landon and William Yantis. Land was split into lots measuring 50 ft (15 m) by 100 ft (30 m) and sold to new settlers. One theory about the name "New Albany" is that some of the original settlers migrated from the Albany, New York area. During its history, the community has also been known by the name of "Hope."
In 1856, New Albany was incorporated with a population of 50, and the first mayor (S. Ogden) was elected.The Wilkins Lumber Mill, later renamed the New Albany Mill, opened in 1881. In 1922, Mrs. Edward Babbitt was elected the first female mayor of New Albany.
In 1970, New Albany was much smaller than it is today, only consisting of a small part of Plain Township that did not even touch Columbus. The first annual New Albany Founders' Day Celebration was held in 1976. As late as 1980, the census only listed 414 residents in the village.
Rapid growth in New Albany began in the 1990s.
