It was a special day for alums of The Mount DeChantel Visitation Academy.

Over 50 alumni showed up on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University on Saturday for the opening of the Mount DeChantel Conservatory.

Inside the Conservatory you will find many things left over from the School.Some of the things you will find in the conservatory are chandeliers from the school, the front door, and the art window.

They also dedicated the bell that rang on the Mount’s campus for 145 years.

The Bell will now sit on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit, and organizers say it’s placement is no accident.

“If you’re standing by this new little thing by the bell you can look one way and see the gym and if you look the other way you can see this conservatory,” Former Superior of Mount de Chantal School, Joanne Gonter, says.

The last class graduated from Mount DeChantal in 2008.
