Inscription.  Charles Manning MacGregor built approximately 1,500 homes in Albany, mostly in the 1920's and 1930s. These homes, many featuring a Mediterranean style, originally sold for under $5,000 and can still be seen around town, giving Albany its own distinctive look. MacGregor loved the city of Albany and its children, hosting a free theater party each year for schoolchildren.
