The Albion Academy Historical Society wants to thank a very special donor for this beautiful sign showing the way to the Academy Museum and Sheepskin School. This donor wishes to remain anonymous, but he felt we needed a bigger sign. So he asked to Historical Society to contact Rick Peterson to make the sign and send the bill to him. We did, Rick did and the donor did! THANK YOU, VERY SPECIAL DONOR!! Also, thank you to Jeff Wright and Jake Kienbaum for placing the sign in accordance with highway rules on June 9, 2022. The smaller sign is now in the Albion Park showing the turn to the buildings. We have had visitors to the Museum every Sunday afternoon since that day. The Museum will be open on August Sundays from 1 to 4 pm.
