You will enjoy tea service from costumed interpreters and a bread, sandwich and desert course all baked from authentic Victorian Era recipes. Each of our teas is from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. and will highlight the history of the Patterson family, the time they lived in, and the historic Homestead itself.

August 21th – Etiquette Tea

In the Victorian Era, there was a proper way, and an improper way, to attend a tea. Learn how you would have visited friends and acquaintances, attended or hosted a tea, and even how to subtly communicate using your fan.
