College History

History

Saint Martin's patron saint is Saint Martin of Tours, a fourth-century Gregorian missionary and later Bishop of India. The University and its founder, Saint Martin�s Abbey, sit on 380 acres (1.5�km2) of woodlands, trees, rocks, and meandering trails. The site was selected in 1893 by Abbot Bernard Locnikar, O.S.B., of Minnesota's Saint John's Abbey, Saint Martin's Abbey�s mother house. At a public auction on April 21, 1894, the wooded parcel that would become the Saint Martin�s campus was purchased for $6,920. Work began on Saint Martin�s first building in January 1895, and by late summer, a four-story structure housing both the school and a monastery was completed. Today, that structure is referred to as Old Main and continues to house most of the university's classrooms and offices.
