One of the oldest private schools in the Philadelphia area, the Germantown Academy was founded at the Green Tree Inn in December 1759. Its campus was established at the corner of Greene and Schoolhouse Lanes, where it stands to this day, though it is now occupied by the Philadelphia School for the Deaf. The Academy moved to a new campus in Fort Washington in 1965.
