St. Aloysius Academy, Tile Plant Road at Thorn Road, New Lexington, Perry County, OH
Significance: Mt. Aloysius is historically significant because it served as an educational institution for children in both New Lexington and the surrounding area for nearly a hundred years. It is also an example of the strong Catholic presence in Perry County. My. Aloysius is also an example of institutional architecture. The main facility is designed in two distinct architectural styles, French Second Empire and Late Gothic Revival. The change in style from French Second Empire, which is more appropriate for residential designs, to Gothic seems to be an indication of the firm establishment of St. Aloysius Academy as an educational institution.
