Much history is in the making in Albion, Indiana because it is the seat of Noble County government, and has been since 1846. The town's centerpiece is the Noble County Courthouse, on a well-manicured square surrounded on all sides by businesses and offices.
Historical preservation takes place a block away at the Old Jail Museum, which is owned and operated by the Noble County Historical Society.
Albion has been home to such well-known former residents as E. Ross Adair, the late U.S. congressman and ambassador to Ethiopia, and Willis Eagles, the later U.S. Army general.
Albion has the population of 2284 persons and Noble County has a population of 46,275 persons. The estimated population of the twenty (20) mile area of Albion is over 90,000.
Albion is located in a gently rolling area of the north central plains. The area has many small lakes formed during the glacial age. These lakes provide many recreational advantages to the area.

STARS AND STRIPES PROGRAM
American flags are hung on street light posts throughout the town of Albion each year from May until late September. This American heritage not only decorates our small town with patriotism, it helps beautify our streets. Your sponsorship can help keep this tradition going as well as honor a loved one. All honoree and memorialized names will be listed in the Albion New Era in the spring. Flyers with names listed will also be posted on bulletin boards and in store front windows throughout town. In addition, names will be listed on the Chamber's web site (albionin.org) under the Stars and Stripes program. The Albion Chamber of Commerce, the American Legion Post 246, Noble REMC, and area citizens have lined the streets of Albion with 60 American flags for over 15 years.
Congratulations Daniel McDonald, an Albion native and Central Noble Graduate on painting Albion's newest mural. It is beautiful.
