During Prohibition , the Sisters ran a distillery in the basement and used to smuggle booze out to Sweetwater River via a tunnel running under the facility.

Svenson's family and later the fact that the man killed may not have been the actual killer. As a child, Penelope Blossom was raised by the Sisters of Quiet Mercy and was taught by Sister Woodhouse everything she knows about poisons. At a young age, she was given up for adoption to the Blossoms to be a young Clifford Blossom's sister and a child bride. It is unclear how much of their plan if any, the sisters knew about.
During her high school years, Alice Cooper admitted herself to the facility to quietly give birth to her baby boy who was later given up for adoption. However, Polly had no intention of doing so and ran away a few months later.
