In the 1850s, St. Albans became a railroad center and flourished as a result. It was the site of the northernmost "raid" by Confederate forces during the Civil War. The district centers around Taylor Park, which is flanked on the east by a row of monumental public buildings. West of the large park is the commercial center, which stretches along Main Street.
