Mount de Sales history is unique and spans post-Civil War Reconstruction, the invention of electricity, the arrival of the first automobiles, two World Wars, the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam, the advent of space exploration, the assassination of President Kennedy, and 9/11. Through it all, Mount de Sales has been a beacon of light for so many.
