1. St. Mary's Academy Marker
Inscription. Established by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word in 1899, St. Mary's Academy was originally located in Clarendon (60 mi. SE). In 1913 the institution was moved to Amarillo through the efforts of The Rev. David H. Dunn and the local Knights of Columbus council. The original section of this three-story brick schoolhouse was completed the same year. Later additions were constructed to accommodate the school's growth. Operated by the Amarillo Diocese since 1945, St. Mary's Academy has played a vital role in the educational development of the area.
