AlbionMich.NET Home Page

Albion Michigan continues to go through many changes. You can see some of them here on AlbionMich.net and the General Guide.

This website, AlbionMich.net, supports local businesses, and local news sources.  See news from local restaurants who are offering carryout food during the rapidly developing Coronavirus crisis.  See the news page that shows Coronavirus news from Michigan newspapers, radio, and tv.

Albion has become known for its live music and is bringing more musicians and artists to town to enjoy our welcoming city.  The Calendar page in the menu sidebar has links to official and current information. We will share live music from past performances on this site as the summer draws near.

Learn more about Albion’s Farmers’ Markets.  Walking and biking trails converge in  Albion, including the North Country Trail and the Iron Belle Trail.  See where to visit regional historic locations and area arts, here on AlbionMich.net.
