The story of St. Johns in Plymouth, Michigan begins in the late 1940s, when St. Johns Provincial Seminary opened it's doors, the chapel on the facility was completed in 1955. Up until the time it closed, the seminary would serve to the Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit. The seminary closed it's doors in 1988, and the property remained vacant until 1994. Cardinal Adam J. Madia wanted to revive the property into a resource for youth and families alike. In 1996, Cardinal Adam made his vision a reality when he transformed a building on the south side of the property, and re-opened as St. Johns Center for Youth and Family. In 1998, more re-birth of this beautiful property and structure began to take place. Construction began in 1998 on the $11 million redevelopment of the main building structures on St. Johns grounds. In October 2000, St. John's Golf and Conference center opened it's doors to the public, in 2005, St. Johns added a grande ballroom to their center. The ballroom is the largest room at the conference center, complete with seating for up to 450 people. It also features a traditional color palette, time-honored furnishings and gorgeous, signature china. The opening of The Inn at St. Johns and restaurant addition opened their doors in 2006, shortly after the opening of the grade ballroom.
