      I found these postcards on ebay a while back. They give you some perspective as to how Academy High was viewed by the public in Erie shortly after it's construction. Academy was a very high profile building!

Above: A great look at the school from the football field. If you've never seen the school from this angle I highly recommend it. You may have to sneak on to the field after a football game.

Above: The trees planted on the north and east sides of the stadium are long gone. There is much more development on the property between State Street and Glenwood Parkway. It looks like you would encounter nothing but trees the whole way to the Erie Zoo!

Above: Another on field look at the school. If you have any images like these or any insight into historic events that may have taken place in out neighborhood please let us know!
