St. Mary's School

Saint Mary's School, Raleigh's oldest private educational institution for girls, was founded in 1842, following the failure of an Episcopal school for boys established on this site around 1834. Today's campus covers approximately 160 acres and features an eclectic collection of buildings that are testimony to the school's continual operation.

Date: ca. 1834
