Somerset Academy is a fine example of mid-19th century Greek Revival academic architecture designed by a noted architect of the period. It also reflects the strong emphasis placed on high quality education even in rural Maine during this period. The Academy was built in 1846, the money for it being raised by subscription. John Ware gave $200 and a half acre of land. The architect was Joseph Bigelow of Skowhegan who designed the handsome Abner Coburn Mansion in Skowhegan. *(from Maine an Encyclopedia)
