San Antonians had few places to educate their children before 1851 when Catholic Bishop Jean Marie Odin recruited members of the Order of St. Ursula to start a school for girls on the river at the northern edge of town.
The school grew quickly, and new buildings were added to the walled compound.
Local children and boarding students from as far away as Mexico studied language, science, philosophy, and the arts.
Surrounded by downtown development, the school remained at this riverside site until 1961 when it moved to a suburban location.
Efforts by the San Antonio Conservation Society saved the historic campus from demolition in the 1960s. Preservation and restoration work was continued by the Southwest Craft Center, now known as the Southwest School of Art, which acquired the entire site by 1981. Today the historic campus continues as a center of learning for students of all ages.
