HISTORY: Albion was a patch of wilderness known as The Center, because of its location in the county’s geographic middle, when citizens voted to make it the county seat in 1846. Upon its selection, the county commissioners of the time appointed a committee to formally select a town name. One of the committee members proposed Albion because he had lived in a town of that name in New York, and the idea was approved. Going back to earlier times, Albion was the ancient name for Great Britain.
