Albion is the southernmost of Erie County's boroughs and offers a lively
downtown business district with a small town population of approximately
1,500. The area is rich in history, fitting for a town built along the banks
of the Erie Extension Canal in the mid 1800s. In 1861, Albion incorporated
with a population of 443.Trains travel the route today and activity abounds.
A well-used area in the borough is the recreational Community Park. It
was built during the Depression by the WPA (Works Progress Administration).
A fabulous feature in the park is a carousel that is recognized as the
second oldest working carousel in the United States. It is housed indoors,
but operates on the weekends each summer. The largest attraction to the area
is the annual Albion Area Fair. Source: Erie Regional Chamber & Growth
