St. Ann's Academy, Victoria: 2 reviews and 5 photos
St. Ann's Academy was built in 1871 for the Sisters of St. Ann's who had come to Victoria all they way from Quebec to teach and provide health care services to the inhabitants of the newly-founded city. Its chapel, where many weddings are still celebrated nowadays, was the first Roman Catholic church in Victoria, and for many years it was the most important Catholic girls' school in the city. By 1973, however, enrollement was down and the academy was forced to close its doors. It was bought by the provincial government and most of the building still houses governmental offices, although the grounds and a small portion of the building (including the chapel) are open to the public.
From mid-May to the end of October, St. Ann's Academy can be visited daily, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Although there are no admission fees, donations are welcome.
Address: 835 Humboldt Street
Directions: Located in downtown Victoria, between Blanshard and Quadra St.
