Albin, Wyoming

The area around what is now Albin was first homesteaded by Swedish immigrants back in the 1880's.

As a town, Albin didn't come into existence until after the Union Pacific built through and left a railroad siding here. The town was named for John Albin Anderson, a man who owned a post office located just to the east of the railroad right-of-way. When that fateful railroad siding was built, Anderson moved his general store/post office/residence right next to the siding.

For many years, the UP trains would stop at least twice a day at Albin to pick up eggs and cream from the local farmers for same-day delivery in Cheyenne.
