ALBION – A historic marker will be erected on the right of way at 223 South Clinton St., in front of one of Albion’s grandest old homes.

The Village Board agreed to let Gar Trusselle, owner of the house, put up the marker.

Trusselle lives in the William V. N. Barlow House, a brick building that was built in the 1870s and features a mix  of architectural styles, including Second Empire, Italianate, and Queen Anne.

Barlow was a prominent architect and builder during Albion’s boom days in the mid to late 1800s. Barlow designed the county courthouse and the mansion on Main Street that later became Swan Library.
