In 1844 Joseph Goodrich founded Milton Academy and built the first gravel and mortar building in the town. (Note that the Milton House is often called the first "concrete" building, but this building pre-dates the Milton House by several years). The Rev. Betheal C. Church was the first instructor. In 1848 it was chartered under the name of Du Lac Academy, but was changed to Milton Academy in 1854. In 1855, a larger building replaced the use of this one.
