🪄 The then & now never gets old.

"We decided to open a museum and host events in the historic spaces. We named the property The Ruins at Sassafras; The Ruins for obvious reasons and Sassafras because the Shakers grew Sassafras trees and used the roots for medicine. Plus we liked the feisty, fun quality of the name Sassafras." — Carol Reichert & Jerome Shereda
