St. Mary’s Academy Sesquicentennial Tour
September 30, 2014
In 1864, three sisters of Loretto from Santa Fe opened St. Mary’s Academy in wild and lusty Denver City. Though the campus moved from downtown in 1951—thus reducing the incidences of energetic students kicking balls into neighbor Margaret “Molly” Brown’s old backyard—St. Mary’s remains a vibrant part of Denver, educating both boys and girls. We’ll visit the Pennsylvania Street site, the current campus, and the former Loretto Heights Academy boarding school. Join History Colorado and Sister Regina Drey SL for the sesquicentennial celebrations.
