Buffalo Academy

Established in 1849 by a joint stock company. First principal was George Rosetter. The school flourished until Civil War began, when it was occupied alternately by soldiers of the Federal and Confederate armies. After the War, the property was deeded to the Buffalo District Board of Education. One of the students at Buffalo during the academy years, John McCausland, became an illustrious Confederate General.
