Description:
The Ursuline Convent, Charlestown, Massachusetts Collection is a collection of papers documenting the history of the Québécois Ursuline nuns in the Boston area and the burning of the Ursuline convent on Mount Benedict during riots in 1834.

The collection spans the period 1833 - 1903 and includes correspondence and contemporary newspaper clippings about the burning of the convent and its attached boarding school, as well as an eyewitness account, a photograph of an engraving of the convent in 1832, and a sketch showing the ruins after the fire. The collection also provides an illustration of resentment towards, and prejudice against, Roman Catholics in 19th century New England.
