701 Fort Washington Ave, New York City New York
In 1899, Mother Cabrini discovered this property as she drove her horse and buggy to what was then a remote northwest edge of New York City. She purchased the present property and opened Sacred Heart Villa, a boarding school for girls.
Mother Cabrini always found great peace and personal tranquility whenever she visited this place. She often stopped and rested at the Villa during her worldwide travels spent in the task of establishing 67 schools, hospitals, and other institutions of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart.
