Albion is a village and historic district in Lincoln, Rhode Island, in the United States.

Albion is home to several mill buildings, churches, and the Kirkbrae Country Club golf course. The historic Blackstone River flows through the center of the mill village with a walking path running along the river. Albion Falls is a waterfall along the Blackstone River, and the Albion Bridge crosses the river just downstream from Albion Dam, built in 1916 to power Albion Mill, now a condominium complex. The word "Albion" from which the mill and village take their name is the oldest name for Great Britain. The still-active Providence and Worcester Railroad passes through Albion.[2]
