Sassafras roots for sale!
Stop by Vernon museum Sun., May 24
The virus just can't keep the busy folks at Our Heritage down.

While it did put a crimp in plans for the Historical Society's annual Sassafras Tea Festival and Civil War Living History event, you can still brew your spring tonic.

Sassafras roots will be sold on the front porch of the museum in Vernon between the hours of 1 and 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 24.  Drive by and pick up roots for $3 a bundle or four bundles for $10. A recipe will be included free of charge. 

Because of the pandemic, the Jennings County Historical Society - Our Heritage Inc. has closed the North American House Museum.  However, the museum is planning to reopen at 50 percent capacity on June 17. This follows the recommended guidelines from the state: "Cultural, entertainment, and tourism businesses may open at 50% capacity. This includes museums, zoos, bowling alleys, aquariums, and like facilities". (https://www.backontrack.in.gov/2348.htmfbclid=IwAR3DsdW6lu2VcY9unFIWjAHvMkxeAjZIxqQRyg7UeGtbb8rj-uixJ2wbg)

The historical society continues to serve the public and is responding to inquiries via phone and email.

Volunteers are looking forward to the upcoming Town and Country Home and Gardens Tour slated for June 27 and 28. Six locations that are on the tour for the first time are sure to please avid lovers of homes and gardens. Steve and Judy Malone serve as hosts with their historic home and expansive gardens in Vernon. Refreshments will be served in their gardens throughout the tour.

The North American house museum will also be open showcasing a special quilt recently donated by the late Kay Brown. Tickets for the two day event are $13 in advance and $15 day of tour. Tickets will be available the first week of June.

For more information call the museum 812 346 8989 or email the organization at jenninghistoricalsociety@gmail.com.
