Attended a large retirement party and it was a grand celebration! The food was good and plentiful and the staff kept the drinks flowing.

Vicki was a dream to work with, the venue is beautiful by its self or you can decorate. The price to use the chapel is more than fair. I SUGGEST A SPRING TIME WEDDING AS THE PRICE REALLY GOES UP FOR summer weddings. The location is easy for all your guest coming in as it is near 1-5 and walking distance to many nice restaurants where you could have your reception.

The Chapel has awesome acoustics. A wonderful place for a wedding. Beautiful craftsman construction. A landmark building.

This is one of the oldest and best preserved buildings dating from the 1870's. It is in pristine condition and one can imagine the ladies who were educated here

The old Academy founded by Sister Joseph. Has been a convent, a school and now houses several small restaurants and has a huge room for wedding receptions. You are allowed to wander some of the halls and get the feel of history.
