Albion is the county seat of Boone County, Nebraska. The history of the city and county are closely entwined. The first settlements in the county were at the Albion townsite, and it has since remained the center of trade within the county. Albion was platted in 1872 by Loran Clark. In 1877, the Mansfield Addition was added, and the Clark’s Addition was added a few months later. The Clark, Connelly, and the Stout’s Addition was surveyed in 1879. The first building was the Frontier Hotel, and a general store was added in 1873, and several other businesses and residences followed. Like many towns, Albion grew quickly once the railroad came to town, around 1880 and 1881, and it was incorporated as a village in 1882. William Amos Poynter, the 10th governor of Nebraska, was a resident of Albion. The city of Albion is located at the intersection of Nebraska Highways 91 and 14, between Spalding, to the west, and Lindsay, to the east.
