Born out of lush farmland acquired by the renowned Taylor family in the latter part of the 19th century, the property was completed in 1923. Taylor was fascinated by French Renaissance architecture and fashioned his new family home in this style. Following his death, his son continued upkeep of the manor, often finding solace in the grounds’ Italian-influenced gardens. It continued to be their family home until it was sold to the Sisters of the Sacred Heart in 1959. To this day, this venue hasn’t lost its inviting, wholesome vibe, as it continues to host unforgettable milestone celebrations. Upon arriving on the grounds, you will be greeted by the manor’s fairytale facade.
