SCHOOL HISTORY BBOT Academy " the first incorporated school for the higher education of girls in this Commonwealth, " was legally established in February of the year 1829. The name was given in honor of Madame Sarah Abbot, who made a donation of one thousand dollars toward a school building. " Abbot Hall " was the pride of Andover. Smith Hall was built in 1854 to provide better accommodations for the many pupils from out of town. In 1859, Miss Philena McKeen became principal of the school, her sister, Miss Phebe, coming with her to be first assistant. The need of a new dormitory was pressing, so in 1884, Miss McKeen, at the request of the trustees made many trips to interested people, soliciting funds. Draper Hall, named in recognition of the generous gift of Mr. and Mrs. Warren F. Draper, was completed in 1890. The furnishings represent the love of many devoted pupils and friends of the school. Miss McKeen resigned her long principalship in 1892, six years before her death. Miss Laura S. Watson succeeded her, filling the position of principal for six years, until her resignation. In 1898, Miss Emily A. Means, who had for some years been identified with the school, especially with the Art Department, became head of Abbot Academy. 12
