Monasticon Praemonstratense (III, 332)

History: Founded in 1934, a dependency of Claymont Canonry at the time, and now linked with Daylesford Abbey, Paoli, Pennsylvania.  The Priory is on the grounds of the High School, immediately next to it.  There is a small piece of the wall from the Chapel of St. John the Baptist, Premontre, on a side altar of the Priory Church, and there are fascinating stained glass windows in this church as well.  This Priory was discontinued in the late 1990s.
