For more than a century, the students
of St. Albans made this building
a center of scholarship, sports
and citizenship. Constructed in
1860 in the Renaissance Revival
style, the building replaced two
schools-the first built in 1800,
the second in 1828-here. The
first two floors of the Franklin
County Grammar School housed
classrooms for 1st to 8th grades.
The top floor, the Academy Hall,
was used for student assemblies
and community gatherings. A
high school curriculum was added
in the 1870s.
As St. Albans grew in the 20th
century, a new high school, Bellows
Free Academy, opened in 1930.
This building became the middle
school (grades 7 and 8) and was
called the Church Stréet School.
The community's grammar
schools consolidated in 1969 and
this building was transferred to
the St. Albans Historical Society
in 1971. A room on the second
floor is dedicated to the prominent
Smith family and their many
contributions to the political, social,
and economic life both here and
throughout Vermont. The museum
also features displays interpreting
the history and heritage of our
community, including the impact
that trade on Lake Champlain,
the railroad, and the Civil War
had on St. Albans.
Depuis plus d'un siècle, les étudiants
de St-Albans utilisent ce bâtiment
comme centre d'éducation, espace
culturel



et complexe sportif.
Construit en 1860 et de style néo-renaissance, ce bâtiment convertit
ici deux écoles; la première construite
en 1800, la seconde en 1828. Les
deux premiers étages de la Franklin
County Grammar School accueillirent des salles de classe de première
jusqu'à huitième année. Le hall de
l'académie veillait au dernier étage
et était utilisé pour les assemblées
d'étudiants et les rassemblements
communautaires.
A l'arrivée du 20ième siècle, une
nouvelle école secondaire ouvrit
ses portes en 1930: la Bellows Free
Academy. Ce bâtiment devint un
collège et fut appelé la Church
Street School. Les écoles communautaires de grammaire se consolidèrent en 1969 et ce bâtiment
fut offert à la société historique de
St-Albans en 1971. Au deuxième
étage, une chambre est dédiée à la
notable famille Smith et à leurs
importantes contributions dans la
vie politique, économique et sociale
de St-Albans et du Vermont. Ce
musée souligne aussi l'histoire et
l'héritage de la communauté ainsi
que l'impact du commerce généré
dans la région de St-Albans par les
voies maritimes du lac Champlain,
le chemin de fer et les effets de la
guerre civile américaine.
