The Ursuline Centre

While visiting family, we toured the Ursuline Centre in Great Falls, Montana. It was opened in 1912 as school run by the Ursuline Sisters. There are a few pictures on their website; here are a few more:

Beautiful photos! Those light fixtures are really something, especially the alabaster one. I love looking at stained glass windows, and those in your photo are gorgeous.

Great post. I live in Great Falls part time and am new there. I think I've seen this building in my travels. I'm a novelist who is currently writing about the Ursuline Convent in 18th Century French Canada. So now, next time I come down to Great Falls, I'll definitely visit the convent and ask for a tour. Thanks so much for posting this.
