Description
Two story wood frame residential building. Formerly the home of HiddenTreasures, a popular store that benefited from student traffic between WesleyHall and Albion’s main campus.

Later the home of Albion College history professor, Dr. Wesley Dick and his wife, Leslie Dick. Leslie works as archivist at the Albion Public Library, Local History Room.

Professor Dick, long-time professor of environmental history, decided to let nature take over the house and grounds, making so significant alterations or improvements.
