this place was a great find. i was told owners discovered that it was the lost 1730 jesuit house just a few years back so it was a surprise by itself.

When touring the house, make sure you have a tour guide to make it interesting. The lady tour guide we had made it very interesting and funny!

Nice place, we'll worth a look. Gives a feeling how the rich and powerful Jesuit lived. The tour guide is a charming chatterbox.
