The Art and Heritage Place features historical exhibits and an artisan's gallery of crafts and fine art created by the Sisters of St. Benedict, including candles, needlework, pottery and hand-dyed fabrics. Items made by the sisters and local artisans are featured in gallery shows presented four times a year. The Haehn Museum has a collection of some 4,000 artifacts dating back to 1857.
