On April 29, 2015, Paradigm Shift Ministries acquired The Haven on Vine, a local Bed & Breakfast in Marion, Ohio (202 South Vine Street). The original building that now houses the office and part of the private residence was built in 1842 by Charles Baker, the son of Marion founder, Eber Baker. It is the oldest standing building in the county. For over 170 years, this landmark has served as a beacon of hope, first as a station on the Underground Railroad and now as the central hub of Paradigm Shift Ministries.
Renamed The Haven on Vine Bed & Breakfast and Retreat Center, it contains three guest rooms, each with their own private bath, as well as a common dining room and private residences for both Dustin Craig and Tony and Tammy Craig. The Haven’s Gallery Room has been converted to a Chapel.
Weekend, weekday and retreat packages will be announced in the coming months. Partnerships are being built with other local businesses, and rooms are being re-themed to celebrate Marion’s rich history. The first new theme is the Presidential Room, decorated to celebrate Ohio’s eight presidents (including Marion’s own Warren G. Harding). Reservations can be made online by visiting www.TheHavenOnVine.com.
