1. The Athenaeum Marker
Inscription. On this property in 1831
Bishop Edward Fenwick established a college
known as the Anthenaeum and placed it
under the patronage of St. Francis Xavier.

In 1840 his seccessor,
Bishop John Baptist Purcell,
gave the College to members of the
Society of Jesus who renamed it
St. Xavier College. This institution evolved
into today's Xavier University, which
moved to its Evanston-Avondale campus
in 1919, and into St. Xavier High School
that transferred to Finneytown in 1960.
