The College of Mount Saint Vincent was first founded as the Academy of Mount Saint Vincent by the Sisters of Charity of New York in 1847. In the decades before colleges and universities were open to women, the Academy offered higher education for women, and its graduates, including many Sisters of Charity, went on to careers of extraordinary achievement and service. The Academy and the Motherhouse of the Sisters of Charity were built on an upper Fifth Avenue tract that is now part of Central Park. After New York City announced plans to enlarge Central Park in 1855, the Sisters of Charity purchased Fonthill, the estate overlooking the Hudson River in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. Fonthill Castle, built by Shakespearean actor Edwin Forrest, still stands on campus and houses the offices of Admissions and Financial Aid.
