Norbertines say deal has been reached to sell Monona friary

MONONA, Wis. (AP) — Saint Norbert Abbey said it has made a deal to sell the San Damiano Friary, a historic property on Lake Monona, to the city of Monona, which hopes to preserve the green space for the the public.

The parties began discussing a sale of the 10-acre parcel at 4123 Monona Drive earlier this year. The city’s agreement to buy it for $8.6 million was approved unanimously by the Monona City Council on Tuesday, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

The Norbertines said they also need to seek the approval of the Vatican.


Ken Notes: This is an amazing property, I wonder the the building could be used as a bed and breakfast or restaurant? The lake front is amazing...
