The original Cassia County seat, Albion is set in a quiet mountain valley at the base of Mt. Harrison, about 18 miles southeast of Burley. As a tourist destination, the town is the gateway to skiing at Pomerelle Mounting Resort, camping and fishing at Lake Cleveland and historical study on the City of Rocks Backcountry Byway. Rich in history, Albion is also a popular getaway for Mini-Cassia residents who come for fine dining or to spend a weekend in the mountains. The historic campus of the former Albion State Normal School is a popular attraction, and regular events are held in the city park. The city library is open Saturdays, as is a Normal School museum on campus.
