STL250: Turn of the century Maypole

STL 250: May Day

This picture from 1914 shows girls at St. Joseph's Academy partake in the Maypole dance tradition on the grounds of the motherhouse. The  school was originally located on the motherhouse campus.

As St. Louis turns 250 this year (learn more at STL250), the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet join the celebration by sharing bits of our own 175+ years of history in St. Louis, the city of our founding. Look for new posts on Fridays throughout 2014.
