Academy of the Holy Names
— Oldest School In Tampa —At midnight, July 18, 1881, two sisters Marie Augustin, Marie Maurice of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, arrived in Tampa from Key West to establish a Catholic school."They came empty handed," the first money was raised from the soldiers at Fort Brooke. In September the school was started in a former gunsmith shop on Zach St. By 1891, the school was located in a majestic building at Twiggs and Marion Streets. In 1928, the Academy of the Holy Names was moved to its present location on Bayshore Boulevard.
