With the onslaught of the Civil War, approximately 500 local men left to fight for the Confederate cause. After the austere post-war years, the economy grew with the coming of the railroad to Albemarle in the 1890s. This influx of industry fostered many socially prominent families who had house parties, social clubs, and philanthropic organizations. There is a wealth of local history to explore in Albemarle.
