St. Vincent's School for Boys

In 1853, Timothy Murphy, Irish-born pioneer of Marin County, gave 317 acres of land to Archbishop Alemany for educational purposes. Here the Sisters of Charity in 1855 founded a school now called St. Vincent's School for Boys. It has been maintained and enlarged by successive archbishops of San Francisco.
