In 1879, Albion was the first county seat of Cassia County. The Courthouse building began construction as a hotel in the same year. The unfinished building was sold to the county commissioners for $1000 and remained the county courthouse until 1919. The most famous trial to be held in this first Cassia Courthouse was the trial of Diamond Field Jack in which William E. Borah was one of the prosecuting attorneys.
