June Update



Soule College was built in 1888 by the Presbyterians, sold to the Methodist in 1903, then purchased by the Wichita Diocese for $8500 in 1913, and renamed St. Mary of the  Plains Academy. The Academy was a boarding school for grade school and high school students and day students.

By 1915 postcards were in circulation as evidenced by this postmarked card from a gentleman in Lamar, Co. addressed to a woman in Independence, Mo. The academy was destroyed by a tornado on May 10, 1942.     80 years ago.
