Hardwick Academy

The Hardwick Town House was built in 1860 and served as the town’s primary school–Hardwick Academy–for 31 years. When, in 1893, Hardwick Academy relocated to Main Street, residents voted to fund and convert the hall into an opera house.

Over the years, the Town House has been the scene of town meetings, concerts, plays, and many other community gatherings.
