A New Display — Foxcroft Academy is celebrating 200 years of education. Come see our new display featuring an old football helmet from the 1920’s, dishes, pennants and other items from the onset of the academy.
Foxcroft Academy is 200 years old. The first academy was built in Monument Square behind the statute. This building was moved and replaced by a larger school. The present day academy is now located on West Main Street.
This displays a 1961 championship letter jacket and a letter sweater.
Also in the display case is a football helmet from the 1920’s.
On top of the cabinet is an lp record, recorded by the Foxcroft Academy Orchestra from 1971.
