New Columbus Academy Memorial Association
Located in New Columbus, Pennsylvania, the Columbus Male and Female Academy was dedicated in 1856. The Academy served as an institution for higher learning, for students from local communities. From 1896-1952 the Academy educated an estimated 1,500 students. Today it is preserved as a historical building by members and friends of the New Columbus Academy Memorial Hall.

We are looking for new members to help us continue to preserve this piece of local history. Individual and family memberships are available. We appreciate anyone willing to donate their precious time to help at festivals and fundraisers. Please email newcolumbusacademy@yahoo.com or message Jennifer Evans Naugle on Facebook for information about becoming a member or hall rental. Please spread the word and help us keep this landmark for generations to come!
