The Old Academy

Built in 1854, the original Knowlton Academy houses a schoolroom with its original stenciling and blackboards, as well as an exhibit about the Knowlton Distributing Home and the thousands of British Home Children who passed through it in the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. Upstairs, visitors can see displays of Victorian rooms.
