Albion - Noble County Seat

The Center - later named Albion was chosen the Seat of Noble County Indiana by the vote of its citizens in August 1846.

Since that time three courthouses have been located on this square.

The first which opened in 1847, burned down in 1859.

The second became inadequate for the county’s needs and was torn down.

It was replaced by a three-story brick and stone Richardson Romanesque building completed in 1889.

Buried behind this bench is a time capsule to be opened in August 2046.
