The adobe and brick monastery was built in 1884 by a group of Carmelite Monks. This group also began the first Catholic Church in West Texas in 1885, which is still in operation today as St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Stanton. The Sisters of Divine Providence ran a school briefly in 1887, before it was sold to the Sisters of Mercy. Originally, there was a large adobe church, a two-story central administration building, and a two-story building housing classrooms and boarding rooms. In 1898, the Sisters of Mercy opened a day and boarding school in the old building. The school was fully operational for forty-four years, and was closed after a tornado ripped through the town on June 11, 1938. The tornado damaged many of the structures in town, and destroyed the administration building and a large adobe church that was part of the school. Today, the dormitory, which was once used by the Carmelite monks as their monastery, and the cemetery are the only structures that remain standing.

Stories brought out like beloved ghost tales told around a campfire. There are many legends surrounding the old dormitory, such as: 1. The Priest.There are varying legends about a priest. This priest either abused the students or had an affair with one of the nuns. He then killed himself in the cemetery. The most common way was for him to have hanged himself either on a tree in the cemetery or on one of the tall tombstones. However, visiting the cemetery will show you that there are no trees tall enough and that most of the tombstones are plaques or small wooden crosses. 2. One of the nuns became pregnant and buried the baby under the convent. The story sometimes has her burying the baby alive in the cemetery. 3. The cellar of the old convent was used as a torture chamber for unruly students. Many...
The Martin County Convent Foundation is currently raising funds to restore the old structure. The two-story adobe dormitory has been repainted white. Inside renovations are currently ongoing. In resurrecting the past, maybe they can dispel the many legends created by overzealous storytellers currently surrounding the place.
3 reviews of Mount St Joseph Carmelite Monastery "Spectacular view going on top of the hill . This was the 6th church in our itinerary of the Visita Iglesia 2017. The church is situated on top of the hill. Fortunately the road to the top is a paved road with a makeshift lot allotted for parking in the middle of the hill.

Prayer has always powered the rambling, suburban monastery built by Archbishop Joseph T. McGucken for 10 Carmelite nuns who moved from Carmel on Nov. 24, 1965. A life of prayer is the witness of the great Carmelite saints, according to the order’s website: “When facing a ‘dark night of the soul,’ St. John of the Cross will tell you to ...
