At this site, on November 17, 1871, the Christian Brothers purchased what
was the Memphis Female College. Brother Maurelian, who served as the first president of
Christian Brothers College, along with three other Brothers and one layman, opened classes on
November 20. Overcoming financial crises and yellow fever epidemics during the 1870s, Christian
Brothers College continued to provide for the educational needs of Memphis at this location
until 1940 when the Brothers moved Christian Brothers College to its present location on East
Parkway South.
