Join the Three Rivers Archivists on Thursday, August 17 to tour the Archives of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Baden. Since 1869, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Baden have been a part of the history of Western Pennsylvania and beyond. Come and learn about what this special collection archives is all about and how the contributions of nuns are often a forgotten piece of the study of women’s history. The St. Joseph Convent sits on a 94-acre campus, complete with community gardens, an apiary, chickens, and a cemetery.
