St. Albans is one city that has changed its names throughout time, from being called Philippi after the settler Phillip Thomas in 1816, to Coalsmouth owing to its proximity to coal fields, to Kanawha City in 1868, and then finally being named after a British martyr St. Albans. Enjoying a strategic location by the confluence of Coal and Kanawha rivers, this city has always been industrially viable and competent. Present day St. Albans has a stunning historic downtown area that attracts tourists to the galleries, museums, old buildings and cafe-bars.
