The present St Thomas School was erected in 1921 and is located on the west side of Fifth Street,across  from the St Thomas Church. There is no record of a parochial school being in Zanesville before a two story frame building was purchased in 1847 for that purpose, just south of the church. St Columbia's Academy was erected on the northeast end of that school in 1856 and was a boarding school for young ladies until 1873.

We, the class of 1939, of St Thomas High School, in the City of Zanesville, and the State of Ohio, being of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make, publish and declare this instrument to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills made by us.
