Preserving history in Noble County

Visit Noble County is thrilled to announce that the Albion Town Council and Noble County Historical Society share our mission to preserve history in Noble County. Council members recently, unanimously voted to approve a facade grant application that will help fund a new roof for the Old Jail Museum, one of our community's most cherished historic buildings.

Old Jail Museum preserving history
Built in 1876 as the county jail, the museum is an architectural gem in the classic Second Empire/Gothic Revival style with its two stories housing both the sheriff’s family and prisoners until 1965. Read more at: Copyright © Noble County Historical Society, Inc. of Indiana

Upon the recommendation of the Albion Redevelopment Commission, the town has approved the use of tax increment financing funds for the Noble County Historical Society's project, helping to ensure this historical gem remains a cornerstone of the community.

Albion's facade grant program offers a 50/50 reimbursement of up to $15,000 per year for eligible properties to complete a variety of exterior enhancements and repairs. Assistance for roof repairs is capped at $5,000. The total cost of the Old Jail Museum roof repair is $38,000. We want to give a big shoutout to Noble County Historical Society member Bill Shultz and his colleagues for their dedication to this cause.

Please join us in celebrating this milestone and preserving the history that makes Noble County special. Consider a tax-deductible donation to the cause:
