Catholic Convent, Corsicana, Texas
Picture Postcards from the collection of Edward L. Williams

 

A Catholic Convent on West Collin Street was built and a school opened in 1880.  the land was donated by Mrs. Noonan, and on this site, a church was built in 1896.  Students from different parts of the county boarded at the convent, and day pupils whose parents lived in town also attended.   The church was moved west of town to the new campus of another parochial school.   About 1920, the Convent School was discontinued and the property sold to the city.   It is now the campus of the Sam Houston Elementary School.
