TOUR THE PROPERTY
We are excited to offer walking tours of our property with Pat Rick, author of The Abbey & Me and Curt Knoke, local photographer and historian. You'll be guided through the mansion and understand a bit more about the history of the property. Tickets are only $10 per carload! (Proceeds benefit Gresham & Menominee scholarships). Other than the designated tour times, visiting the property is considered trespassing. Trespassers will be prosecuted.
REQUEST OTHER ACCESS
Use the form below to request access to the property for photo shoots or any other purpose. Please allow several weeks for the owners to review requests and respond. Please note that unauthorized use of the mansion or the grounds is strictly prohibited and constitutes trespassing.
PLEASE NOTE: As the Novitiate mansion is currently under construction, it is not available for event rentals (weddings, receptions, graduations, reunions, etc.) at this time.
LOOKING FOR THE PARANORMAL?
The Gresham Novitiate property has a long history and we realize that some of that history has dabbled in the supernatural or paranormal. We receive requests now and then from visitors who want access to the property to investigate ghosts, spirits or other phenomena. However, we do not allow any paranormal investigation on our grounds.
We are working hard to rebuild this beautiful place, and many have commented that a sense of peace is already felt on the property. Does that mean we do not believe in the supernatural? Actually, the owners have a very strong faith in God and his plan to use this property as a place of love, redemption and healing! We appreciate your support as we look to the future and re-imagine it for good.
