About Albion, Michigan

Welcome to Albion! Albion is home to Albion College, a small liberal arts college, is the original home of Mother's Day, observed since 1877, thirty-seven years before it became a national celebration, and the birthplace of the songs "The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi" and "The Old Rugged Cross".


We are very proud of our rich cultural heritage and ethnic diversity; of our trees, parks and river; of our nationally renowned educational institutions, Albion College and Starr Commonwealth; of our commercial historic district and brick-paved mainstreet; and of our industrious residents who come together each May, under the auspices of Citizens to Beautify Albion, to plant flowers at the gateways of our community.

Our lives are greatly enriched by the many cultural offerings provided by Albion College, Swingin' At The Shell, Blues @ The Bohm, Festival of the Forks; and by the numerous athletic events and recreational activities offered through the City's Recreation Department, Albion College, and Starr Commonwealth.


Albion has a wealth of opportunities for meaningful involvement through hundreds of volunteer organizations and churches in our community. For help joining an organization of interest, please call the Chamber. We'll help you find rewarding activities in Albion.


Whether you are a visitor or someone considering moving to Albion for business or personal reasons, we are pleased to welcome you to our town! As you discover all that we have to offer, we are sure you'll come to love our community as we do.
