Free on site parking. Docent led tour of 3 story furnished house from 1808, and nearby “neo-gothic” (brick) chapel. I had the great good fortune that docent Jackie was available at noon to provide tour. She was extremely knowledgable and articulate about the life of Elizabeth Seton, and the history and significance of the seminary and chapel, and historic baltimore founders of several orders.

This site is not just historic it is quite spiritual, sacred and holy. So many "first things" happened at that site. It is truly such a moving place to visit.

This was a surprising visit today. We loved everything about our visit to such a historic monument/seminary. The architecture and peaceful beauty ARE to die for!! The amount of history and solitude tied to this place just beats my imagination. The docent is full of information and she is a natural. Monday was just one of their busiest and they really took good care of my daughter and me. Make sure you pass by this lovely quaint site. It is for all ages!!! Thank you Bilaine and Ms Kathy for a wonderful afternoon full of history, facts and more importantly sweet Baltimore hospitality. With the big group before us, Knights of Columbus being there before we arrived we never felt pushed to the side or overlooked.

Last Saturday, we toured the Saint Mary’s Spiritual Center and Mother Seton House in Baltimore. I was fortunate to be living in Rome, Italy when the Beatification of Mother Seton took place on March 17, 1963 by Pope John XXIII. Mother Seton was the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church (on September 14, 1975 by Pope Paul VI). She established the first Catholic girls' school in the nation in Emmitsburg, Maryland, where she also founded the first American congregation of religious sisters, the Sisters of Charity. The Sulpician Fathers settled at the St. Mary’s site in 1791, invited by Bishop John Carroll to start the first Catholic Seminary in the United States. Today, you will find four buildings on site: The Seminary Chapel, Mother Seton House, the Spiritual Center, and the Visitor Center. The Chapel is absolutely stunning. It was completed in 1808 and is one of the earliest examples of Neo-Gothic architecture in the United States. This site is well worth a visit!
