My name is Sarah Campbell and I am the Assistant Archivist at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.  I have been asked to find a photograph of the original site of the college founded by Bishop Fenwick in Benedicta Me.  As this is part of our history we would love a copy of any photographs of that area. We are especially interested in photographs that show the foundations of the original building. 


Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi Sarah, I don't know if you got any help with this already, but I can put you in contact with a great resource! Richard D. Kelley Jr. put together three great books about the history of Benedicta, ME. rdkellyjr@roadrunner.com He has some great photographs, but the main part of the original structure was removed by1871, and a photograph would be hard to come by. Part of the wings added to the original building existed to 1927 as the rectory and can be seen in some pictures. I have some other resources also if you need something else. Good Hunting! - Paul Hines

Here is the link to the photo. Hope this helps you!
