Old Nazareth Academy

Designed by Jules C. Leffland and constructed in 1904, this fanciful Alsatian structure is one of the city’s most important architectural landĀ­marks. It was built to house the convent school of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament, a French order. Sisters from the Lyons order came to Texas in 1852 and to Victoria in 1866. NR-1986.
