Description:
Built in 1840 as a Methodist High School and it also served as a hospital for Union forces during the Civil War. The Academy was purchased by Catholic nuns in 1877 and became a girl`s school until it closed in 1971. This beautiful Academy is now a Bed and Breakfast and an antique store. Pictures taken inside the school and on the grounds surrounding it show orbs, vortexes and mists. These pictures appear on the Academy`s web site. Apparently haunted by the nuns who once ran the school: door open and close at night by themselves. There is a large cemetery on the property where the sisters are buried.

I recently stayed in the "hostel" located on the grounds at the Arcadia Academy and I have to say it was a very fascinating experience. The people that run it now are friendly and if you are respectful they will give tours and explain some of the history of the place. The rates (especially for the hostel rooms) are very reasonable. You will be roughing it of course as there is no heat in the buildings this time of year and the shower/bathroom is communal. If you decide to visit The Academy, do it mid-week, bring plenty of extra blankets and a flashlight, and do not go alone. Seriously.

1) arcadia valley is a gorgeous location anyone considering a drive in that direction this time of year should definitely do it for the sake of viewing the foilage alone. 2) last time i was in the area this location was FOR SALE. it's an awesome place with wonderful history just too big for someone to make it profitable. the antique store and restaurant (which had the best homemade bread in the world) are now closed. 3) i can't verify the hauntings as i've never been able to stay all night at this location or do a proper investigation.
