Albin Township Home >
Albin Township was first settled in 1866 by S. G. Edsell. The following year, Edsell was joined by Anton Katen and William Harrison. The township was named by Lucy (Cordell) Rima, possibly referring to the Latin word albinus, which means “white.” In April 1870, 26 individuals petitioned to organize Albin Township. Sarah Upson also signed the petition, but her name was crossed out. The township was the organized at its first official meeting, held at the home of John Teas, on June 23, 1870. Teas was elected Township Supervisor along with Charles Armstrong. In 1890, a post office opened in Albin, with Hans Moen serving as postmaster in his home. The office was closed in 1896.
