St. Marys

Kansas State Historical Marker
      This city and college take their name from St. Mary's Catholic Mission founded here by the Jesuits in 1848 for the Pottawatomi Indians. These missionaries, who had lived with the tribe in eastern Kansas from 1838, accompanied the removal to this area. A manual labor school was operated at the mission until 1871.
