Spend a leisurely afternoon on Mother's Day enjoying tea, cake and a talk on tea in the recently restored 1793 carriage house of the gorgeous and historic mansion at Gore Place. The elegantly furnished mansion has been called the "Monticello of the North," and architectural historians consider it to be the most significant Federal period mansion in New England. The mansion at Gore Place was built in 1806 and has entertained such notable dignitaries as Daniel Webster and James Monroe. Following your tea and snacks, enjoy a talk on tea, "the first wicked weed," with author Dory Codington.
Seating is communal at tables of up to 7.
This event is recommended for ages 8 and older.
