A magnificent Roland Park treasure, the historic St. Mary’s Seminary and University is a stunning sight…
Founded in 1791, St. Mary’s Seminary & University in Baltimore is the first Catholic seminary established in the United States.
In 1929, St. Mary’s Seminary moved to its present location at Roland Park in Baltimore. Designed by Maginnis and Walsh of Boston, the seminary’s classic entrance and massive facade are a recognized landmark in the city. Inside the main doors stands the marble statue of Mary known as the Sedes Sapientiae, Our Lady Seat of Wisdom, patroness of the seminary.
