It will be held on Sunday, July 8th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. While you’re there, be sure to check out the museum’s exhibits as well as the Stout daylilies and the butterfly garden in the back of the museum.
Albion Academy was only 1/2 a mile from my house growing up, so it’s a really familiar landmark to me. My parents have been members of the Albion Academy Historical Society for quite a while, and they are very involved with the museum every summer.

Albion Academy founded in 1854 with 2 buildings and a 3rd building added in 1868. First co-educational academy in WI, allowing boys and girls to learn and recite together in the same classroom. Kumlien Hall, opened in 1969, is a 2-story replica of South Hall. This education followed the one-room country school, e.g. Sheepskin School. The school house was moved from State 59 west of Edgerton to the Albion campus in January, 1960.
Albion Academy is located just north of Edgerton off Hwy 73/51 in Albion at the western end of State Hwy 106. Take exit 160 from I-90 and turn right on Albion Road.
