Profiles
WHEN?
Early 1960s
WHERE?
Marist Preparatory Seminary Main
Building (now North Academic Hall)
WHO?
Two Marist brothers are shown here re-
gilding the cross on top of Marist Prep's
main building. Before it became MCC's
Bedford campus, the 200-acre property was
a Catholic boarding school for high-school
boys planning to enter the priesthood and
a working farm. In addition to taking
rigorous academic courses, the students also
helped the Marist fathers and brothers run
the farm. Marist Prep closed in 1969, the
state bought the property in 1978, and the
Middlesex Bedford campus moved there
in 1992.
