Albion is home to several mill buildings, churches, and the Kirkbrae Country Club golf course. The historic Blackstone River flows through the center of the mill village with a walking path running along the river. Albion Falls is a waterfall along the Blackstone River, and the Albion Bridge crosses the river just downstream from Albion Dam, built in 1916 to power Albion Mill, now a condominium complex. The word "Albion" from which the mill and village take their name is the oldest name for Great Britain. The still-active Providence and Worcester Railroad passes through Albion.
