Albany Bridge

Albany is located in the heart of the Willamette Valley just 44 miles north of Eugene, 69 miles south of Portland, and 24 miles south of Salem, Oregon's state capitol. Nestled between the Coast and the Cascade Mountains allows an easy drive to ocean beaches or snow covered slopes.

The city is noted for its vibrant industries, including rare metals, foods and grass seed. Albany also is nationally famous for its preservation of historic homes and neighborhoods. It is home to Linn-Benton Community College and is a short drive from Portland, Oregon's largest city.
