The building for the first high school in Painesville had originally housed a private school, the Painesville Academy. In 1852, the Academy’s trustees deeded the school building and grounds to the school board. This old grammar/high school was torn down in 1860 to build a new two-story brick building.
Later known as the “Old Academy Building,” it served as a grammar and high school until 1898 when Painesville High School was built. It continued to be used as an elementary school until the early 1920s when it was razed to permit the construction of Harvey High School at the same site.
I created the giclée restoration of this building from a small historic photo. - AB
