Aerial View of Albion MIchigan 1993 The Forks
Legend of Aerial View 1993, The Forks, Albion, Michigan

This aerial view of Albion, Michigan features the Forks of the Kalamazoo River seen at the top right. This was the spot where in 1833, Tenney Peabody, with his wife Eleanor, built a thatched roof shack. The area became known as ďThe Forks.Ē

The Mill Race in the center of this art map, is where there was once a water-powered mill that ground grains for Albion farmers. Before that, the friendly Potawatomi Indians settled near the Forks of the Kalamazoo River. where they fished and hunted the wild life, which was plentiful.

This view from 1993, shows Stoffer Plaza, the location of Albionís Farmerís Market in the center, below the Mill Race, with the covered patio and small trees. Three of Albionís 17 parks are shown in this view, from left to right are Lloyd Park, where there is a picnic area and deck over the river, Rieger Park (labeled) and far right is Victory Park, above the Forks. Several buildings are now removed that are shown in this scene.

These include the large grain elevator behind the Bohm Theatre, the old car dealership near the Farmerís Market, and the electric company building near Erie Street. The small blue building that still stands today between the grain elevator and the river was called the Frog Pond and was once a Purple Gang hangout. This art is part of a larger view that was commissioned by the Abion Recorder and sponsored by Albion businesses and residents in 1993.
