Along the banks of the Ohio River . . .

. . . New Albany, Indiana, founded in 1813 by brothers Joel, Abner, and Nathaniel Scribner, rose to prominence in the 19th century. Its strategic location below the falls of the Ohio River, New Albany advanced shipping and boat building. And by the mid-19th century this river port town with its major steam boat production center was the largest city in Indiana.

As New Albany developed, the stately homes and commercial buildings built by the community’s leading citizens revealed its prosperity. Many of these structures have been preserved. Some need preservation-minded owners who will lovingly and sensitively rehabilitate them.

New Albany, with approximately 37,000 citizens, offers a rich heritage for their enjoyment. With convenient access to Louisville, Kentucky, across the Ohio River, New Albany offers affordable housing prices and wise investment for cost-conscious consumers who seek vintage property.

Here you’ll find information on residential and commercial historic properties in New Albany’s downtown core currently listed for sale -- even living spaces for lease or rent and property for sale through the sheriff's office.  Also, you’ll find New Albany’s history, its prevalent architectural styles, and information on tax incentives and other tools to help revitalize the community.
