Sisters of Saint Joseph
The convent of the Sisters of Saint Joseph is on a 177 acre property on Park Road in West Hartford, on the Hartford city line. The Sisters have owned the property since 1898. There is a large brick convent building and a chapel, but most of the acreage is undeveloped.
This fall the Sisters issued a request for proposals to buy and develop the property. The town has very little undeveloped land, so this poses an opportunity as well as a risk. I am one who thinks the property can be developed into something terrific. We will see.
Back in Florida. It was circuitous but I am not one to complain. Have a great weekend, everyone.
