The Huntersville Agricultural Building

Education was obviously important in the small town of Huntersville; by 1878 it already had two schools. Later, these schools were consolidated and became known as the "Academy." Students came from many states and even foreign countries to be educated at this institution. It was one of the first public schools in North Carolina to be designated as a state high school. The Academy was destroyed by a fire decades ago. Subsequently, in 1920 the Huntersville Agricultural Building was built, and still stands just east of the current Huntersville Elementary School.
