Views of Saint Joseph's College, 278 Whites Bridge Road, Standish. The College was founded in 1912 by the Religious Sisters of Mercy, and the original campus (called College of Our Lady of Mercy) was connected to Saint Joseph's Convent (photo at this link). The College relocated to Standish (at the time within the boundaries of North Windham) in 1956, and took the name Saint Joseph's College. The College became co-educational in 1970.
