[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="left" width="900"]“The buildings stank of old linseed oil, the contractors must’ve already been working on restoring the buildings during 1989. Someone wrote on Facebook that the convent fire (1990) began on the top floor, from an unattended air blow torch (used to blister paint). The painting contractor got the job because of his sister, who was a nun. No one was injured. Some of the Aubusson rugs, antique furniture and fine art was salvaged. But much more was lost in the fire.  More info about the fire.” — Maureen Hurley
