The most specialized residential area at Saint Edward Seminary was the 'Nuns’ Quarters' or convent, a sequestered area on the second floor of the east wing, above the kitchen. Here, the nuns who managed the kitchen had individual bedrooms, a community room, a common bathroom, and a private chapel with a sacristy and a confessional, pictured below. A private stairway led down to their parlor and dining room behind the kitchen. Now, the sisters' quarters will live on as guestrooms at The Lodge at St. Edward.
