Description:

As if an answer to the need for a separate building to house the growing high school program, a respected city leader and lumberman came forward to provide the funds. It was because of a personal tragedy, however, that Alexander B. McDonell wished to build a school building in memory of his wife, a former Notre Dame student, and their three young children, two of whom were students at Notre Dame (the other was a two-year-old). Following his letters to the Bishop of the La Crosse Diocese and to Notre Dame Parish, McDonell Memorial High School was completed in 1907. View MACS History.
