Villa Flora

Villa Flora

Located on St. George Street just a couple blocks south of the plaza, Villa Flora began life as a winter residence for a Baptist minister from Minneapolis. Later it would become a small hotel and then a restaurant. In 1940 the Sisters of St. Joseph purchased the property and it became home to Sister Patrick Theresa’s kindergarten where many local children began their education.
