Towns Named Albion

There are 22 towns named Albion in the USA, and there are 4 more towns in the world with this name. Only 6 of those in the US are large enough to be considered substantial towns, and there is no city with this name. They are the Albions in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, and Pennsylvania. All the rest are very small, are slowly disappearing, or have been absorbed into larger towns. They are in Arkansas, California, Delaware, and 13 other places. The populations of the 6 fairly large Albions range from 1,650 people in Albion, NB to 8,616 in Albion, MI, which is the largest Albion in the United States. These population figures are from a 2023 atlas. The 2nd largest Albion is the one in New York, which has a population of slightly more than 6,000.

The name Albion is basically Roman. When the Romans occupied England in ancient times, they called it Albion after they recognized the White Cliffs of Dover, a major tourist attraction today. These chalk cliffs are instantly known. So Albion is a name for England thanks to the Romans.

There are 4 international Albions. There is a town on the island of Mauritius with this name. A town of about 6,000, it is described as “The quietest little village on this island”. There are reportedly 3 Albions in Australia. There is a town named Albion Park south of Sydney in New South Wales. I have been there. There is said to be a neighborhood in Melbourne with this name. Melbourne is in the state of Victoria. There is what must be a very, very small town in Western Australia called Albion Downs. The experts are my source for these, so there might be some discrepancies.

Because these town named blogs have become so arduous and take up so much time, I have decided to write only those in the future that appeal to me or have regular, published population figures. Albion Park in New South Wales is said to have a population of almost 14,000.

Since the beginning, I've had to avoid writing about the downside of travel in order to sell more than 100 articles. Just because something negative happened doesn't mean your trip was ruined. But tell that to publishers who are into 5-star cruise and tropical beach fantasies. I want to tell what happened on my way to the beach, and it may not have been all that pleasant. My number one rule of the road's disaster is tomorrow's great story. My travel experiences have appeared in about twenty magazines and newspapers. I've been in all 50 states more than once and more than 50 countries. Ruth and I love to travel internationally--Japan, Canada, China, Argentina, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, etc. Within the next 2 years we will have visited all of the European countries. But our favorite destination is Australia. Ruth and I have been there 9 times. I've written a book about Australia's Outback, ALONE NEAR ALICE, which is available through both Amazon & Barnes & Noble. My first fictional work, MOVING FORWARD, GETTING NOWHERE, has recently been posted on Amazon. It's a contemporary, hopefully funny re-telling of The Odyssey. View all posts by roads-rus
