This collection of records concerning the Acacia Villa School is selected from the papers of Mortimer V. Marshall. Acacia Villa School was founded in July 1852 as a private school for boys. Originally named the Lower Horton Seminary, it was located at Horton Landing (now Hortonville), Kings County, NS. By about the 1905-1906 school term, the school permitted girls to attend classes. Acacia Villa School closed in [late May] 1920. Today none of the original buildings remain standing, but the Wolfville Historical Society has erected a monument on the grounds of the former school. In 1963, Mortimer Villiers Marshall researched and wrote A Short History of Acacia Villa School. It was published and distributed through an agreement with the Acadia University Institute. A taped interview at Accession 1981.012 also includes a brief description of this research. While conducting his research, Marshall collected school programs, calendars, photographs, artefacts and other materials relating to the Acacia Villa School; these form the basis of this collection.
