In 1666 the house Elsendael in Boxmeer was bequeathed with the goal of founding a convent. The Carmelite nuns arrived in 1672, and after a few years began building their convent. The east wing, the south wing and the chapel were built during this time. In 1720 an extension followed with a north and west wing. The old house was demolished in 1732. The sisters lived in Elsendael for more than three centuries. They left the convent in 1975 and moved to the former novitiate building on Kerkpad road. Later they moved to the convent care house Sint Anna on the Veerstraat. Elsendael was restored in 2001 and given a new purpose.
