Historical Guided Tours of the Abbey Monastery

 

Ever wondered what was inside that beautiful historical building? Now you can take a guided tour and learn the history of the Benedictine Monks and the Abbey School.

Guided one hour tours are available every Saturday June through the end of September at 11 am and 1 pm or by appointment (tours by appointment available for groups of 6 or more) for $8.00 per person. Our knowledgeable guide will take you back in time, explaining the history of the building, the monks who served here and the student body. You will visit the chapel, Abbots quarters and dining, sacristy, bell tower, library, parlor, original kitchen, pantry and dining halls, upper floors and the basement. (this tour does involve stairs, or you may join us for a tour of the main floor only).

Visitors are always welcome to stop by the Monastery and enjoy a self guided tour (by donation) of the main floor of the Monastery anytime during regular business hours, Monday – Friday 9 am to 4 pm or Saturdays during the summer 10 am – 3 pm.
