CALVERT HALL COLLEGE
In 1845, the De La Salle Christian Brothers established their first permanent foundation in the United States in Baltimore, at a school that became Calvert Hall College. The school occupied a building on this site from 1891 to 1960, when it moved to its current location in Towson, Maryland.
