Acacia Villa School

by Arthur W.H. Eaton
1910

One of the most important educational institutions of the county is "Acacia Villa School", or "Patterson's", for boys, at Grand Pre, whose buildings stand almost in the centre of the old Horton Town Plot, a little above the present railway station. The school was founded in July, 1852, by Joseph R. Hea, D.C.L., who was its principal until July, 1860. At that time it was purchased by Mr. Arthur McNutt Patterson, M.A., who conducted it until 1907, when he was succeeded by his son, Mr. A.H. Patterson, B.A., who for fifteen years had been business manager of the school and during part of that time had been on the teaching staff. Besides the proprietor, there are in the faculty of the school a head master and assistant master, and two or three other teachers. The aim of this excellent school is to fit boys physically, morally, and intellectually, for the responsibilities of life, to give a practical business education to those who desire it, and to prepare students to enter the several maritime provincial colleges.
