Staff Photo: Erin Evans . The original 1944 barn that Conyers' first monks lived in still stands today. The 21 Cistercian monks lived, prayed and worshipped in the hay barn until they built a pineboard monastery later that year. The historic barn will be renovated for the Monastery's new Visitors Center.
