New Albany was founded in 1813. It was named after the city of Albany in New York, which itself was named after the Duke of York and later King James II of England. The Lewis and Clark Expedition passed through the area on their famous expedition to explore what is now known as the Northwest Territory (now states). In 1817, New Albany became a seat for Floyd County. By 1900, it had grown to become Indiana's largest tobacco market; by 1930 it had surpassed Evansville as Indiana's second-largest city (after Indianapolis), with a population over 50,000. The original land surveyors were William Cooley and Joseph Boucher.
