Marist College was built in 1915 as a boys Catholic school and was part of the major compound of Our Lady Chapel and Hall. It is of Italian Renaissance and Spanish Colonial Revival style and is made from mud adobe construction. The Marist Brothers, a Catholic religious order, was founded in France by Saint Marcellin Champagnat in the early 1817s to focus on educational work throughout the world. In 1914, Granjon invited Brothers Gosbertus, Gregorius, Louis Casimir, and Henri Fumeaux, four Marist Brothers from Mexico and Texas, to come to Tucson to learn English and study the American educational system. It was converted into office space for St. Augustine Cathedral. It has suffered major water damage, but now you can tell from the picture, it is being saved, and is a registered landmark of the City of Tucson.
