The school, convent and rectory possess the distinctive characteristics of Mission Revival, a style not well represented in Walsenburg.

St. Mary School, Convent, Rectory & Church 

These three buildings form a collection of the best-preserved examples of the style in town.  The complex, which includes the extensively altered church, contributed to the social history of Walsenburg.
