Inscription. This academy furnished a full preparative college course in the days of elementary public instruction in this vicinity.

The land, buildings, and annuities for the maintenance are one of the gifts of John Leidy Riegel, 1819-1893 to the St. John Reformed Church, Riegelsville, Penna., for the use and benefit of the surrounding community.

"So when a good man dies,
for years beyond our ken
the light he leaves behind him lies
upon the paths of men."
