Albany became the first settlement in Western Australia, known in its early days as Frederickstown, with the arrival of Major Edmund Lockyer with a contingent of convicts, soldiers, a surgeon and a storekeeper in the Brig Amity on Christmas Day, 1826. Today Albany is a thriving regional centre and popular tourist destination, boasting many wonderful, well preserved buildings from earlier times; so well preserved in fact that they are still in use today. Albany Historical Society is the proud custodian of Two of these treasures, maintaining them on a voluntary basis and inviting the public to come and visit our past. Founded in 1962, Albany Historical Society is a non-profit organisation, affiliated with the Royal Western Australian Historical Society and staffed entirely by volunteers.
