Brechin Hall Exterior


Brechin Hall Exterior


Phillips Academy


Brechin Hall was built in 1865 with money donated by John Dove and Peter and John Smith alums and prominent Andover businessmen. They named the building after their childhood home Brechin, Scotland. This photo shows the Elm Walk, in its prime. Dutch elm disease and an ice storm has taken its toll over the years. It served as the library for both the seminary and the academy until 1929.
