Purple Gang Walking Tour. The notorious depression era Purple Gang used Albion as a convenient location, midway between Chicago and Detroit, to meet and plan their criminal activities. Bootlegging and robberies reaching across southern Michigan were schemed in many of Albion’s local hang-outs for this gang. Maps available for a self-guided walking tour at the D.D.A. and the Greater Albion Chamber of Commerce.
