This reconstruction log building, faced with clapboard and painted white, was occupied by Mother Seton and her little community in February 1810. At the close of the year the school numbered thirty boarders and forty day pupils.

In 1817 this school, Saint Joseph's Academy, was chartered by the State of Maryland.

The apostolate of Catholic education begun here by Mother Seton continued to flourish after her death.

Elizabeth Seton died in this house in 1821.
