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 trading 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
Sponsor an American flag in your loved one’s name.
The Albion Chamber of Commerce is again giving community members an opportunity to sponsor American flags in honor of or in memory of an individual. The Stars and Stripes program gives family and friends a chance to recognize their loved one(s).
American flags are hung on street light posts throughout the town of Albion each year from
approximately mid-May until late September. This American heritage not only decorates our small town with patriotism, it helps beautify our streets.
Sponsor a flag for $50 per name (In Honor or In Memory), per year (see form below). All honoree and memorialized names will be listed in the Albion New Era in the spring. In addition, names will be listed on the Chamber’s web site (albionin.org) under the Stars and Stripes program. Flyers with names listed will also be posted on bulletin boards and in store front windows throughout town.
The Albion Chamber of Commerce, along with help from the American Legion Post 246, has been purchasing, maintaining and hanging American flags throughout the Town of Albion for over 15 years.
