Tour the exquisitely decorated historic home (ca. 1860) of Bucks County's Cornell family, which in 1932 became the original Villa Joseph Marie, thanks to Mother Maria Kaupas's vision and wisdom. Enjoy refreshments, music, children's activities, and a special visit from Santa Claus!

In the school, get some of your Christmas shopping done by patronizing our Villa Vendor Fair, sponsored by the Villa Alumnae Association. Alumnae representatives from Avon, Mary Kay, India Hicks, Pepper Pop Paper, Rodan + Fields, and more will be on hand. Please click here for our flyer.
