ALBION – In this post card from around 1905 we see the Orleans County Jail and Sheriff’s residence.

Taken from Platt Street, the County Courthouse appears in the righthand background.

Built in 1903, it was a fine example of Medina sandstone construction.

In 1971 it was demolished to make way for the present county jail.
