St. Mary’s Spiritual Center and Historic Site on Paca Street

St. Mary’s Historic Site is home to two buildings on the National Register of Historic Places: the Mother Seton House and the Historic Seminary Chapel. Mother Seton house is named for its original resident, Elizabeth Seton, the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. The Historic Seminary Chapel served as spiritual home for many of the early leaders of the Catholic Church in the United States and was the birthplace of the first African-American Catholic faith community in 1796. There is a visitor center on campus with more information about the history of the site.
