Ashford Academy

The Ashford Academy is an historic school building on Fitts Road in Ashford, Connecticut. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, with clapboard siding, and a gable roof topped by a small square belfry tower. Built in 1825, it is believed to be the town's oldest public building. It was used for both public and private classes until 1875, and as an exclusively public school until 1949. It has unusually fine Federal period detailing for a school of its period, which were generally more utilitarian in appearance. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. ... more on Wikipedia
