From the Saint Albans Museum:

Jordan Hall, was a boy’s military school  that once existed on Smith Street.  It occupied the extensive mansion and grounds once owned by Worthington Smith, brother of Governor John Gregory Smith.  

The school offered a complete academic education for young men, as well as military training.  After 1907 they only admitted young men under the age of fifteen years old.  

The school would offer a military-school education until approximately the time of the Great Depression, and then the school and the mansion itself would both cease to exist.  Today nothing remains of the once imposing mansion.  

The Museum would be very interested in talking with you if you have artifacts or photographs from the time when Jordan Hall was an important part of city’s educational history.  You can contact us by calling 527-7933 or through our we site at
