Welcome to Athenaeum Rectory
Athenaeum Rectory is all that remains of and extraordinary school for girls which flourished from 1852 to 1904. This school taught the girls everything a well educated young man would have learned at the time, including physics and calculus.
The Moorish Gothic architecture of the Rectory sets it apart from all other buildings in the area. The interior of the home has been newly renovated and boasts beautiful flashed glass with gold dust in its construction, a lovely cast iron fountain, and an original chandelier. Changing exhibits are featured in the home throughout the year.
