In 1821, Samuel and Rufus Birchard, Quakers from Vermont, bought parcels of land, and by 1850, a village had developed. Originally the settlement was called Birchardville. The name was later changed to Mount Albert, named after then Prince Albert, Prince of Wales. The first store was built in 1850. The main north west road in the village, Centre Street, was built along the path of an Algonquin Indian trail. Wikipedia
