Originally a farmhouse situated on a 100-acre farm, Marymount Event Center was purchased in 1919 by the Sisters of St. Dominic and transformed into Marymount Military Academy in 1923. Upon its opening, only 30 boys attended the academy, with this number reaching 120 as the years progressed. The school thrived until 1975 when the upkeep became too much for the sisters. The property was sold to Harold LeMay in the 1980s, who promised to preserve the property and maintain it under his ownership. Harold used the space to house his growing collection of classic cars and Americana memorabilia. Today, Marymount Event Center operates as a not-for-profit organization, hosting events and tours to preserve and maintain the memorabilia within the property as a gift for generations to come.
