Priory Historical Photos: Grand Hall Before and After

Before: Here is our Grand Hall (the former St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church) as it looked when we acquired it in 1984 -- it came lock, stock & barrel as a church, complete with pews, statuary, altars and furnishings.

After: Here is our Grand Hall as it appeared shortly after we opened in November 1995. Note that we preserved the original hanging lamps. We also, to the extent we could, retained and restored the existing ornamental stenciling.
