FIRST NORMAL SCHOOL – CONCORD CORNERS

In 1797 the Town voted to construct an academy building at Concord Corners.  Date of construction is unknown.  Rev. Samuel Read Hall’s first session for the training of teachers for the common schools in this building was on March 11, 1823, called Columbian School.  In the 1823 fall term the name was changed to Concord Academy, and in 1825, by an act of Legislature, it was made Essex County Grammar School, so as to be eligible to receive rents from the grammar school lands in Concord.

Among distinguished guests in Concord on August 15, 1923, attending the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the first normal school in America, were Dr. Crosby Perry who had attended Dr. Hall’s school, and his daughter Miss Grace Perry.  Miss Perry made the drawing of the town-story brick school house from a description furnished by her father.
