Inscription. The Acadia Baptist Academy once occupied these buildings and grounds. The school was founded in 1917 by the Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church and the Southern Baptist Home Mission Board. Its purpose was to provide Christian Education and training for individuals involved in ministry. In 1922 the control was transferred to the Louisiana Baptist Convention. Hardships caused by fire, inadequate finances and equipment did not deter the Academy from accomplishing its mission. The school closed in 1973, succumbing to financial pressure and changing times.
