The Gardner House was built around 1875 by an Albion hardware merchant, Augustus P. Gardner, who came to Michigan from New York in 1837 as a young man. He lived in this Victorian brick house until his death in 1905.

Now see what life was like at the turn of the 20th century. Re-creations include a general store, a kitchen, music room, bathroom and bedroom. Notice the fainting couch in the parlor -- women at the time had breathing problems because of corsets and large dresses, which caused them to faint.

There are also exhibits dedicated to local stories, such as the Tuskegee Airmen of Albion.
