Next time you are out and about in the southern part of town, take a ride on some of these old roads. It is hard to imagine that at one time they were the main drag. There are some lovely old homes on Lasher. This morning I went down Old Ravena Road with the thought of finding the location of Selkirk's one room school. No sign of that, but, there is a lovely old Victorian that I had no idea was there. If you keep going over into the Town of Coeymans, just over the Coeymans Creek is the Tobias TenEyck House. It was built about 1758 and is on the National Register.
If you would like to look at the original USGS map from 1893 plus ones from 1927 and 1950 visit this website: http://docs.unh.edu/nhtopos/Albany.htm Just for fun, switch between them and Google maps.
Feel like exploring some more old roads? Here's a list of all of them (except for Olde Coach which I don't think is really old anyway.) They are Old Glenmont Road, Old Kenwood Road, Old Oakwood Road, Old Quarry Road, Old Ravena Road, Old Road, Old River Road, Old Route 9W, Old School Road and Old Town Road.
