Albany Township Reviews

8 reviews
All Categories
Too many people moving into the area, that are not interested in maintaining the rural feel of the area.
Review Albany Township
Visit Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, Albany Township Historical Society, WK&S Railroad. The Kempton Fair, Kutztown Folk Festival.
We have several State Police officers living in the area. The sheriff's office makes regular tours of the area. The neighbors watch out for each other.
