A few things have changed in Baker City over the last 125 years, from August 24, 1885, when five Sisters from the religious order of the Sisters of Saint Francis of Philadelphia traveled by train from Pennsylvania to open the First Foundation in the West. After arriving in Baker City, they dedicated the Academy of St. Francis and opened St. Elizabeth on August 25, 1897.
