The Minneapolis Academy was founded as a business training school on in 1879. The original building was on Harmon Place. In 1884 the school began to model itself on New England academies and prepare students for college. The academy purchased almost two acres at the corner of Harvard and Delaware and this brownstone building went up in 1889 at a cost of $35,000. Two years later the school had 180 students of both sexes.
