In 1892 she came down with an undefined illness. Fortunately she found several outlets, including tenement reform, child welfare, city planning and zoning, and a variety of public health initiatives. She is known as Indiana’s foremost "municipal housekeeper," a Progressive era term for one who applies domestic skills to social issues, and she was instrumental in the passage of several statewide laws. She authored several pamphlets, including "A Tale of Tenements" (1912), "Beauty for Ashes" (1914), and "What Bad Housing Means to the Community" (1915), among many others. Albion Fellows Bacon died on December 10, 1933 and is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Evansville.
