Tiny little place, interesting to learn the history of the 19th century health retreat it used to be. Playground right next door, and across the street from Peace Pilgrim Park. "Peace Pilgrim (July 18, 1908 – July 7, 1981), born Mildred Lisette Norman, was an American spiritual teacher, mystic, pacifist, vegetarian activist, and peace activist. In 1952, she became the first woman to walk the entire length of the Appalachian Trail in one season. She also walked across the United States, speaking with others about peace. She was on her seventh cross-country journey when she died. Starting on January 1, 1953, in Pasadena, California, she adopted the name "Peace Pilgrim" and walked across the United States for 28 years."

Albert Hall has been a venue for bluegrass, country, and Americana music for many decades. Inexpensive door charge ($5 adults $1 children) for hours of music starting early almost every Saturday evening, with spontaneous music on the porch and the "pickin' shed". It's all about the music here, with some coffee and home baked goods for a buck or two.

We really like the beer at this place. It's technically an "educational experience", so go educate your palate with some great beer. No food here but lots of nearby great food that you can bring in. (our favorite is Tacos Al Carbon)
