- This c. 1893 photograph shows the class of the Nelles Academy in Mount Pleasant, c. 1893. It was built c. 1846 and torn down c. 1900. It began as a private school providing classical education and was founded by Dr. William Nelles. The Academy was situated on the same location as the current Mount Pleasant Public School, at 667 Mount Pleasant Rd.
