Cardigan Mountain School A boarding and day school for boys in grades 6 through 9

History’s Mysteries

Alumni, friends, and family are working together to build the Cardigan Archives.

This ambitious project enables participants both near and far to help identify images from our historical collections. The result? A growing resource for all members of the School community, and an opportunity for each of us to tell our own part of the Cardigan story.

Read more about what inspired this project, and then send us your own solutions: use our online form or email us at And, of course, we hope you will enjoy seeing some familiar names and faces in our growing gallery of solved mysteries.
