 The Third Annual Albany History Race is an Amazing Race style afternoon scavenger hunt for history experts, novices, and visitors interested in learning about Albany’s past. No prior knowledge is needed to participate. For this year's race, the Albany Public Library is partnering with Historic Albany Foundation and showcasing the endangered buildings of our city. The event will begin in the library’s local history room and conclude at McGeary’s Pub, where teams will receive 20% off their food and drink that afternoon. Additional Albany themed prizes will be awarded to the fastest teams!

Here's how you can participate and win!

Make a team! All teammates must fit in one car. You provide the car.

Meet at the library at 1pm on Saturday, 9/24 to receive clues directing you to historic locations in Albany.

Plan the quickest route to visit the locations that afternoon.

The final stop is McGeary's Pub where all teams will get a 20% discount on food and drink! We'll also reward the fastest teams with additional Albany themed prizes!
