ALBION – A new brochure creates a map of downtown Albion businesses, churches and government buildings, sites that are included on the National Register of Historic Places.

The new Albion Business Directory also lists businesses outside the historic district. Merchants are included on Route 31 and Route 98.

The Albion Merchants Association created the directory and had 1,000 copies printed. The directory was ready in time for the Strawberry Festival and is available at many Albion businesses.

“We wanted to help visitors and townspeople know what is here,” said Carolyn Ricker, owner of Bindings Bookstore and the Merchants Association president. “It is part of our effort to let people know what is available in Albion and to shop local.”

The directory highlights the historic Courthouse Square. Orleans Hub provided the photos for the brochure.

A new map and brochure also was created for the Route 98 corridor, sites from Albion to Point Breeze. For more information on that, click here.
