The History of the Grail

Since 1940, when Lydwine van Kersbergen and Joan Overboss arrived in the United States on the last ship out of the Netherlands as the Nazis invaded, the Grail has had a home in the United States. First, at Doddridge Farm, outside Chicago, then to Loveland, Ohio and the establishment of Grailville in 1944. The rest, as they say, is (our) history.
