On this site St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first U.S. native to be canonized, founded an academy for girls in 1809. A high school was later added and in 1902 St. Joseph's College was chartered as a three year institution for women. In 1914 the college was recognized as a four year college empowered to award degrees in the arts and sciences. It closed in 1973. The alumnae association founded in 1897 is still active.
