Hebron Academy, still going strong, celebrated its 200th birthday in 2004.  I found an interesting history of the school on Wikipedia, which states that the Academy was founded in 1804 by Revolutionary War veterans from Massachusetts who had received land in the District of Maine as compensation for their military service.
