Terrific hosts, great hospitality, very informative - and the artifacts in their home were an absolute delight to see and hear how all was transformed by Bruce's creative genius! Melanie's Victorian Tea was bountiful, the table beautifully presented with lovely china. A wonderful afternoon visit and tea!

The tour began with a wonderful presentation about steampunk by Bruce Rosenbaum. He described the movement of this creative art and how the Victorian era blends with the technology of today. He then gave us a fabulous tour of his house, pointing out all of the items he has steampunked. Don't miss this tour. Great fun that ends with a delightful tea and refreshments.

It may be my fault but I understood the event to be a about having a 'high tea' in a great location. My groupon was for 2 people but we came as a group of 3. I paid 60.00 for my daughter and what we received was a lecture, tour of their home and tea. Now I love to go to tea house and what we received was not even close. The scones were bought at the local supermarket and there was only one pot of brewed tea (the other option was tea bags). This was not worth the money I spent!!!!

From Our Editors

Not long after moving into their 100-year-old Victorian home, Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaum realized the roof was leaking. That repair begat numerous others, and over the next 12 years the Rosenbaum's slowly revitalized their abode and discovered a passion for home restoration. In 2007 they founded ModVic—short for Modern Victorian Home Restoration—and assembled a team of collaborative carpenters, painters, electricians, and architects who share their dedication for upgrading Victorian dwellings.

Since then, the Rosenbaums have transformed from simple homeowners to steampunk virtuosi—Wired magazine once called Bruce a "steampunk evangelist"—and have been featured on media outlets ranging from NPR to The New York Times. The Rosenbaum's recent projects have fused Victorian style and modern technology more effectively than a horse-drawn SUV. Clients ranging from tattoo shops to patent lawyers call on their ingenuity to create one-of-a-kind, functional art that combines eras and ideas from salvaged pieces and modern technology. More than a fashion trend, the steampunk design process tells a story by reusing historical artifacts in new ways, thereby celebrating their place in history. ModVic frequently collaborates with artists to create steampunk-related art shows and events, and, as The Boston Globe reports, Bruce and Melanie are turning their home "into a steampunk showcase." Their abode's latest flourishes include a fridge re-cast to look like a Victorian cast iron and a working copper water filtration tank.
