History

The land that was to become the village was founded in the center of Plain Township in 1837 by Nobel Landon and William Yantis. Land was split into 50 ft (15 m) x 100 ft (30 m). lots 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.[7] During its history, the community has also been known by the name of "Hope."[5]
