The Borough of Englewood Cliffs has two nineteenth century settlements: Undercliff and Coytesville. Several estates were constructed atop of the Palisades within the second half of the 19th century by William B. Dana, the foster father of Englewood Cliffs first Mayor, William B. Allison. A resort known as Palisades Mountain House stood at the cliffs edge, which is now presently occupied by Saint Peter’s University. The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Peace purchased 5.5 acres of land in 1888 as a retreat, presently known as the Villa Lourdes, a home for aged sisters. In 1938, the Sisters built the Saint Michael’s Novitiate. The Large Romanesque Revival edifice is a visual landmark along the Hudson River, which was designed by Richard Reilly of New York City. This monumental building is visually prominent from the Palisades Interstate Parkway.
