Part of historic academy is slated for demolition

(Examiner) - The old Bel Air Academy would be partially demolished to make room for expanded parking and playing fields at a neighboring school under a compromise aimed at satisfying preservationists and parents alike.
The school board plan calls for demolishing all but the original parts of the academy, built between 1882 and 1897. Most of the property can become fields and a bus loop for Bel Air Elementary, which had been the area’s first modern school and served as school headquarters until 2006, board members said. Link
