Albion is a city in Cassia County, Idaho, United States. It is part of the Burley, Idaho Micropolitan Statistical Area.
Albion is one of the few cities in the Magic Valley region of Idaho founded before 1900. Beginning in 1893 it was home of the Albion State Normal School, which trained many Idaho teachers. The school was closed in 1951 and its teaching programs were transferred to Idaho State College (now Idaho State University) in Pocatello. By 2006 the campus had fallen into serious disrepair.
The population was 267 at the 2010 census. Albion was the county seat of Cassia County from 1879 to 1918.
The first settlement at Albion was made ca. 1875. The city was named for Albion, the poetic name for Great Britain. D. L. Evans Bank was founded in Albion in 1904. Although the bank’s headquarters is now located in Burley, it continues to operate a branch in Albion.
