While it is not our plan to present a complete history of Alberton on this site, we would hope to be able to share some interesting highlights of life in Alberton through the years. We draw your attention to the fact that there is also an "Our History" page that relates specifically to the Alberton Presbyterian Church. We know that the history of the congregation and the history of the community are in many ways inseparably intertwined, but we thought that there might be some who for family or personal reasons were primarily interested in the wider Alberton community. By all means, if you are really interested in Alberton history, check out that congregational material too.
There was a brief but interesting sketch of the history of the Alberton community published in a book entitled "Ancaster's Heritage: A History of Ancaster Township" produced by the Ancaster Township Historical Society in 1973. We hope that through this website some people will be induced to share their personal memories, or stories passed down to them by their grandparents, to help complete the picture. We also hope that we may remind some people of family photographs which they may have which illustrate some of the details.
Watch for stories about Alberton's history to be added here on a regular basis.
Those interested in the history of the area will also want to make themselves aware of the activities of the Ancaster Township Historical Society which focuses on the larger community of which Alberton is a part.
If you know some stories from Alberton's past, please drop us a note and share them with us. Similarly, if you have any photos that illustrate earlier times in Alberton we would love to hear from you. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
