Marillac College

The now-defunct Marillac College for Women trained young women to become nuns and other religious vocations.I would imagine this was the main administration building for the college, which is graceful in its pure, simple design.

    I remember when it opened; it was actually a valid college -not just a religious "trade school."

  3. The top building was the Daughters of Charity dormitory; the bottom, as you know, is the library.

  4. How convenient was it for the library and dorm to be connected; no excuses for not studying even if the weather was bad!
