a history of
Located in Acton Maine, our rescue was inspired by the lives of Rose Kessler Wentworth (“Grammy Rose”) and her husband Ralph Edward Wentworth (“Wicky Ralph”). The rescue is a living tribute to their legacy and was built on land that has been stewarded by the Wentworths and their antecedents dating back to the American revolution.
