1914
St. Mary's College
To Sell Some Land

     A tract of land owned by St. Mary's college, lying between the college and Munger Addition with about three hundred and fifty feet frontage, is to be cut up into building lots and sold.
     The money received from the sale of this strip of land is to be used for the creation of new buildings to replace some of the present wooden structures, according to a statement made by Bishop Garrett Friday morning.
     There are about twenty-nine lots to be sold. Hann & Kendall, real estate firm, will handle the proposition. The city sewer system is already installed so that residences built on this tract are sure of being connected directly with the city sewer system. Water and gas mains are being laid and will soon be installed in close proximity to this section, affording these conveniences for the homes that may be erected here.
     The property will be placed upon the market within a short time.
