Father Ryan Elliston House System Leadership

House Inspiration

For 62 years – from 1929-1991 – Elliston Place was more than a street, it was home to a special spirit of education and service that strengthened the entire Nashville community.  Father Ryan’s landmark brick structure, along with the historic Faculty House and the Bishop Alphonse Smith Annex, was home to thousands of Father Ryan students and a touchstone for Nashville itself.  It was here that history was made in service to our nation, in service to social justice, and in service to our faith. 

With its connection to Father Ryan families and tradition, Elliston House symbolizes the Father Ryan legacy, our roots and the foundation for today’s students and teachers.
