Welcome

to the City of Albion, Michigan

The City of Albion is located in south-central Michigan. Tenney Peabody, Albion's first permanent settler, arrived at 'The Forks' in 1833. In 1835, Mrs. Peabody named the area 'Albion' because some of the early settlers, including Jesse Crowell, hailed from Albion Township, New York. ('Albion' won out over 'Peabodyville,' Mrs. Peabody's first choice.)
