Pine Beach Borough - Admiral Farragut Academy

Boys in grades five through twelve attended Admiral Farragut Academy, America's first preparatory school with a naval training program. Farragut Hall, the focal point of the academy, was formerly the Pine Beach Inn. Pictured is Adrniral David Glasgow Farragut, the first naval officer in United States history to be designated an admiral. Also pictured is the main hall of the former academy. Alan Shepard, one of America's first astronauts, was a graduate of the Academy. The Academy is no longer in operation.
