Legend of The Gardner House Museum
From the historical marker: Augustus P. Gardner (1817-1905), a wealthy hardware merchant, built this Victorian-style house in 1875. Gardner’s home was a three-story, thirteen-room mansion with a mansard roof until he died in 1905.
In 1966, after decades of neglect, the house was purchased by the Albion Historical Society. Restored, it houses a local museum. Five of the rooms are furnished as a nineteenth-century home, and the remainder features permanent and rotating exhibits.
This house is among the last of its type in this area.
