In the 1870's St. Thomas found itself tripling in population due to the railway. This unprecedented growth sparked a flurry of activity including the construction of a progressive education facility for young women of the world.

Alma College brought people to St. Thomas from all around the world. The magnificent structure still stands as a testament to that past, and a dedicated group of Alumnae are fighting to preserve the building for future generations.
