This stunning historic hilltop property...with newly renovated section ready for residential use as personal home or vacation getaway...offers a myriad of possibilities for future use. Large elevated site with expansive open lawns set in in beautiful part of Historic New Ipswich village, surrounded by distinguished period homes. Appleton Academy, formally New Ipswich Academy and later renamed after benefactor Samuel Appleton, the largest early donor, was the second oldest academy chartered in New Hamphire (after Phillips Exeter) in 1789. It continued in operation until becoming a college preparatory school in 1969 and remained open until economic times forced it's closure in 1974. Destinguished alumni of Appleton Academy include Jesse Appleton, first President of Bowdoin College, Jonas Chickering, founder of Chickering Piano Company and Levi Woodbury, Governor of New Hampshire. Since 2012, thre property has been home to The Center for Information, Technology and Society (CITS). In addition to the massive brick main building there is also a large frame building in need of substanstial repair which was the former school gymnasium and basketball court. Bring your ideas...many exciting possibilities for future use of this dignified campus!
