About Ruth Olsen

My family has lived in Sharon for 4 generations. This has always been...and always will be....my home.

Ruth Olsen purchased this house in 1967

Why Ruth Olsen chose Sharon

My family selected this mountaintop for a home site. I believe it represents the very best location in the area.

What makes this house unique

The unique combination of the home itself and the location. Just a short drive from New York City.....yet it offers a true New England experience.
