Hill Military Academy, c1901

Quite a while ago we featured a photo of this Hill Military Academy building from 1943 as it was being readied for demolition. This photo shows it circa 1901 as a brand new building at 2451 NW Marshall St. The area was a far cry from today’s densely populated neighborhood.

    Do I understand correctly that 2451 NW Marshall St. is not the original address of Hill Military Academy but the post-1930 address?

    Also, does anyone happen to know how to find out if a certain person attended Hill Military Academy prior to 1920?

    What I find fun is thinking about how buildings influenced other buildings, from an architectural style perspective. I think this certainly could have influenced Arenson Court (1930), the Ghibelline (swallow-tailed) castellations vs. these Guelph variety, at 2533 NW Marshall, built while this was still standing, by the great character of an architect who was versed in Italian architecture, Elmer Feig. The Guelphs and the Ghibillenes were constantly at war…and the Guelphs had this square castellation…
