Historic Albion Opera House for sale
One of the oldest buildings on the Noble County Courthouse Square could be yours. The 1879 Albion Opera House is for sale to a preservation friendly buyer with a vision for the important landmark.
A split deed – one party owned the second floor and a different party owned the first floor – had hindered the sale of the property for many years. Community members who wanted to protect the building from potential demolition reached out to Indiana Landmarks for help. Using a loan from our Efroymson Family Endangered Places Loan Fund, the Courthouse Square Preservation Society of Albion purchased the troubled building last year, and we partnered with the group to find a buyer.
The property is available for $65,000. We’re offering a 3% buyer’s broker fee.
The building includes approximately 4,000 square feet on each floor. The interior needs complete renovation, including all systems and finishes. Features include tin ceilings on both levels, with two separate commercial entrances on the first floor, and a single large open space on the second floor.
The exterior is in good condition with a newer roof, although the masonry requires some tuck-pointing. Two overhead garage doors in the rear allow for easy deliveries and storage. Check out more photos of the interior and exterior here.
Albion is approximately 30 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.
