Welcome to the Heritage Room

Opened in July 2019, our Heritage Room is located in the Welcoming Center at 440 S. Batavia St.

Our Heritage Room shares our stories with the communities we serve for over 100 years. The room displays photos, videos and other artifacts that trace our beginnings in 1650 France, to the arrival of the French sisters to the United States in 1836, and the journey to California in 1912.
