This is an update of my post published on July 23, 2011:
Apparently the idea of a school that teaches swimming was quite marvelous back in 1827...
I'm guessing, because the president of the United States, John Quincy Adams, went to Boston and checked it the young country's first swim school.
Another famous adult who visited the first known swimming school in the United States was naturalist and painter-of-birds John Audubon.
Several websites claim that Adams and Audubon, ages 60 and 42 at the time of the school's opening, were not merely visitors to the school, but were actually pupils there! Maybe, but... I'd like to see some evidence of the claim.
Sign up for swim classes or swim team. Or just go swimming!
Remember, safety first! Here is a water safety website.
