Coffee House

Block +
US Census Block # 34-122

This two story residential building, was once the home of Norman Wiener,former industrialist and mayor of Albion.

In more recent years the house has served as a co-ed annex, with students living in the house and serving drinks and prepared snacks during limited hours of operation. Each academic year brings a new group of students to manage the house, substantially changing the culture from year to year. A yearly tradition is to paint the interior in eclectic colors at the start of each academic year. The colors perhaps reflect the eclectic nature of people who visit the house.

If you have house memories or stories that you want to pass on, send an email to and I will post them here. Past inhabitants of the house are particularly encouraged to respond.

Sign located over the entrance.
