The Monastery Imaculate Conception, nicknamed the "Castle on the Hill" provides santuary for the largest community of Benedictine women in the United States. Built in 1867, the recently restored eight-seven foot tall Romanesque dome is a key feature of the structure. There are also eighty-nine angels scattered around the church. Monastery Immaculate Conception is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been designated an Official Project of Save America's Treasures.
A gift shop, For Heavens Sake, sells handmade items crafted by the sisters and spiritual merchandise. Visitors seeking a peaceful getaway may visit the Kordes Center.
