In 1855, Father Charles M. Menard,
venerable pastor of St. Joseph Church,
foreseeing the need for Catholic education
of Thibodaux youth, purchased land and built
a school for girls on this site.
The Sisters of Mt. Carmel bought the property and
building, operating the school from 1855 until
the Thibodaux Central Catholic High School
(E.D. White Catholic High School) opened in 1965.
In 1947 the Sisters erected here the first
school gymnasium in Lafourche Parish which
also served as a community center.
