The City of Albertville traces its origin here to 406 East Main Street, where on Jan. 13, 1860, James C. Miller (1833-1862) established a post office in his log cabin home, which also doubled as the community's first store. Miller, who was later killed during the War Between the States, named the post office "Albertville" in honor of his father-in-law, Thomas A. Albert (1796-1876).
