Part of a land grant to Dutch settlers from New Netherlands Gov. Peter Stuyvesant in 1655, St. Albans, like much of Queens, remained farmland and forest for most of the next couple of centuries. By the 1800s, the plantations of four families; the Remsens, Everitts, Ludlums and Hendricksons were formed the nucleus of this sprawling farm community in the eastern portion of Jamaica Township.

In the 1890s, St. Albans began to emerge from a sleepy farm community. The first street lights illuminated Lazy Lane, which became Central Road and then Linden Boulevard, and Freeman’s Path, which became Farmers Boulevard. New shops clustered around August Everitt’s lone store. The St. Albans Golf Course, built in 1915, brought rich and famous golfers, including baseball star Babe Ruth. The Depression forced the golf course owners to sell to the government, and it became the St. Albans Naval Hospital, serving thousands of World War II veterans.
