In the Superior Street National Historic District, residing alongside Albion’s red brick street, the Bohm Theatre has stood as an entertainment center for nearly eight decades. Opened in 1929 by musician and theater aficionado George Bohm, the Bohm Play-House, as it was once called, retains much of its original character and architectural elements.
Albion District Library
Stop #2 on the Albion tour
“Arts and Crafts” isn’t just your favorite subject from elementary school. It’s also the architectural style of the Albion District Library. Arts and Crafts style architecture utilizes forms from the natural environment – such as grasses, plants and trees – in the design of a building. When you look at the Albion District Library, you can almost see prairie grasses and reeds in the design of the windows, and in the corners of the building near the roof.
The Forks of the Kalamazoo River
Stop #3 on the Albion tour
The Kalamazoo River played a major role in the history of Albion. When settlers arrived in the 1830’s, they referred to the area as “The Forks” because the east and south branches of the Kalamazoo River converge there, in what is today Reiger Park.
