Abbey of Gethsemani

So peaceful you might not want to leave

Save to my Account

Established in 1848, the abbey is home to America’s oldest order of Cistercian Monk. Visitors can walk the grounds and attend a church service and enjoy the peaceful chanting of the monks. Stop in to the Welcome Center to view a film on the order, go through the archives and shop. The monks support themselves by selling cheese, fruitcake and bourbon fudge. All of which are divine.
