OHU50K NOTES

The realtor’s build date of 1854 for this lovely Queen Anne Victorian seems a bit too early. Located in Albion, the area was not incorporated as a village until 1855, and as a city in 1885. Plus, the Queen Anne style saw popularity between 1880 and 1910. The home sits on N. Superior Street, just a short walk to the Superior Street Commercial District where you will find a red clay brick roadway lined with mostly two- to three-story commercial buildings, most of them Italianates.
Although I cannot find any definitive proof, I would guess that our featured home today was originally built for one of the successful businessmen of the commercial district.

Town History

The first European-American settler was Tenney Peabody who gave the task of naming the community to his wife. She considered Peabodyville, but ultimately decided on Albion after the name of the former residence of the settlement’s first US postmaster. The closure of a major factory in 1975 saw the beginning of the city’s decline of jobs and population, but since then several organizations have been founded in the hopes of re-establishing a thriving community.
