The Harris Teacher's College, named for William Torrey Harris, a former St. Louis superintendent of schools and United States Commissioner of Education, served as one of two teachers' colleges in the city of St. Louis at that time. It would later merge due to integration with Stowe Teacher's College, named for Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, to become what is now Harris-Stowe University. Primary construction of the building was completed in 1902 and was designed by nationally renowned schoolhouse designer William B. Itner, whose firm also designed about half of St. Louis' historic school buildings. Appalled to discover the structure was targeted to be razed to make way for a Walgreens, Restoration STL intervened and purchased the school from the St. Louis Public School System in April 2004. Theresa School was the first school building to be placed back into service following acquisition from the school system and now houses 35 unique, loft-style apartments. The property now boasts luxurious amenities for tenants including a washer/dryer in each spacious unit, granite counter-tops, a hot tub, fitness center, gated parking, hardwood floors, and dramatic 16 foot windows.
