In 1836, citizens of Fayetteville and vicinity resolved to organize a literary society.  Original trustees of the Fayetteville Academic Society were:  David Collin, John McViccar, Hervey Edwards, Alfred Clark, Jacob R. DePuy, Albert Neeley, John Yelverton, Caleb Whitford and Darlin Thompson.  In April 1837, the Academy was incorporated and stockholders met annually until it closed about fifteen years later.

In 1836,  trustees  purchased the lot and building of the Methodist Episcopal Society.  The 50' x 40' two-story wooden building at the east side of Academy St. near the corner of  Elm Street was commenced in 1830 and the stone basement story had been finished for a place of religious worship prior to its sale.  After purchase, modifications were made for school purposes and a belfry and bell were afterward added on top of the roof.

The first principal was Daniel E. Burhans who was soon followed by James Kellogg.  Other principals included Nathan R. Chapman, David Pease, Jr., Robert T. Conant, Hesden King, Rev. Oran Hyde, Almon Gregory and William N. Marsh, among others.  In 1842, Eusebia Pease was appointed principal of the female department, a position she held for a period and in 1845, Miss Sophia Lathrop, a teacher, also became principal.  The following month, the trustees hired William Marsh.

According to Samuel D. Luce, an early student at the Academy, the original faculty of the Academy was as follows:  Principal, Daniel E. Burhans, A. M., Assistants, Nathan R. Chapman, A. B., teacher of Latin and Greek; Melancthon Stilwell, teacher of Mathematics; Preceptress, Miss Abigail Edson; Juvenile Dept., Miss Harriet A. Bronson.

The academic year was divided into two terms of twenty-three weeks each, each term consisting of two quarters, eleven and a half weeks each.  The summer term in 1837 commenced in May and the winter term in November.  For the academic year 1838/39, the terms of tuition per quarter were:  Juvenile department, from $1.50 to $2.00; academical department for reading, writing, arithmetic, grammar and geography, $3.00; all higher English branches, $4.00; Latin, Greek, French and drawing $5.00; music, exclusive of the use of the instrument $8.00; inclusive of it, $10.00.

The Academy's first floor contained two school rooms with a small room for a library and philosophical apparatus.  The second floor contained nine rooms used for student and recitation rooms.  The basement was used for weekly exercises in declamation and composition and also contained a small room where part of the philosophical apparatus was stored.  After the Academy was closed sometime between 1851 and 1853,  the building remained unoccupied.  In 1857, the Union School was organized and the old academy became the district schoolhouse.

According to T. Clarkson Gage who described the district school in the late 1850's, "the old academy building had an impressive entrance on the south side of the building.  One entered a large hall with hooks all around on the walls on which the students hung their coats and caps.  At the further end was a broad stairway leading to the second floor.  On the first floor the room on the left or west side of the entrance was the primary room and the small room under the stairs was known as room number two and the room on the east side was known as room number three and was a very crowded room with every seat taken, extra seats being put on the platform on which was the teacher's table. The teacher in room number three was Miss Cornelia Watson who lived in a house on the site of the brick  Baptist church (N.E. corner of Academy St. and Genesee St.)

In the early sixties the building was remodeled - the original stairway taken out and an outside stairway to the second floor was put in for the boys and an inside one built for the girls.  Two recitation rooms were added on each floor on the east side.  The main assembly room was on the second floor and was presided over by the principal.  Two other teachers held classes in the recitation room.  The rows of seats held scholars known as G. H. I. J. and senior divisions.  J. M. Bain was the principal and he heard certain classes in the main room while classes were held in the recitation room.  The class recitation hours were controlled by wires running from the principal's platform to bells on the side of the walls in either room.  A rope from the bell in the belfry on top of the building hung down on the platform  The bell was rung to summon the pupils to school and to call them in from the playground.

The only evidence of the equipment of the old academy was a table of electric apparatus used for electrical experiments.  There was a glass wheel and Leyden jars on an old table for the purpose of generating electricity.  Little did we think what these experiments were the forerunner of.

The old academy building was used as the Fayetteville graded school for many years.  It was abandoned when the new schoolhouse was built on main street" (Union School, 1890).

The building was torn down in 1906,  six years after the Board of Education had sold the building to W. T. Gaynor at public auction.

Students and Staff

Many of the names in the following lists of staff and students of the old Fayetteville Academy are repeated.  Although all the annual records of students are not available, the lists published in 1890 are valuable because they show current residence and both maiden and married names where applicable for women.  The names are reproduced as they appeared in the various newspaper articles and catalogues and were not necessarily typeset correctly.

In 1838, the school had been in operation one year.  Nathan R. Chapman, A. B., was the principal; Melancthon Stilwell, assistant teacher; Miss Abigail Edson, preceptress and teacher of music, and Miss Phebe Judson, teacher in the juvenile department.

The article notes:  "Among the many men distinguished in after life who once were enrolled as students of the Old Academy, may be named Rt. Rev. Henry A. Neely, D. D., Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Diocese of Maine.

Henry A. Neely was born in a wooden structure which was built by his grandfather Alexander Neely and for many years occupied by him as a hotel situated on the lot now known as the Tremain lot on the corner of Genesee and Chapel streets.  His father, the late Albert Neely inherited this property, and the hotel business have been discontinued about 1830, he erected a building located just west of the hotel building and about on the site now occupied by the wing of the present Tremain house where he conducted a general store for many years and did an extensive business.  He was one of the prominent men of that time and held the office of Justice of the Peace, and was one of the original trustees of the Old academy.  Henry Neely and the late Byron R. Palmer were about the same age and were classmates in the Academy.  They were both noted for their remarkable talents as declaimers and at the Friday afternoon exercises, were the favorites among their schoolmates and the visitors who used to attend the exercises.  About the year 1838 Albert Neely with his family moved to Belvidere, Ill., and afterwards to Chicago where he died.  Henry's early education was obtained in western schools but he entered Hobart College at Geneva, N.Y. when fifteen years of age graduating four years later in the class of 1849.  He began his study for the ministry under Bishop DeLancey while a tutor at his Alma Mater.  In 1854 he was ordained a priest and before his consecration as Bishop of Maine in 1867 he was rector of prominent churches in Utica, Rochester and New York city.

The only visit which Bishop Neely has ever paid to this village was about thirty years ago.  He was then rector of Christ's church Rochester.  This visit was an occasion of great interest to his old schoolmates who still remember a sermon then preached by him in old Trinity church which then, as now, occupied the site just opposite his old homestead.  He was then about thirty years of age; the slender boy had developed into a stalwart and commanding figure--he looked the Bishop even then; the tenor voice which used to charm his hearers in the old Academy had changed to a deep musical bass and the able sermon he then delivered demonstrated that he had more than fulfilled the promise of his boyhood days."

In the June 19, 1890 issue of "The Weekly Recorder," the editor acknowledged errors in the above list, including the fact that Mrs. Martha (Treat) Canfield had died at Bristol, RI on May 11, 1889, that James S. Baker was listed as an Academy student, when he really was a pupil in the old district school after the closing of the Academy.  The editor then issued a supplemental list, claimed to be taken mostly from the Academy Star in 1841:
