Event Description

If you enjoy interactive history, then the Hearts and Homes Historic Tea is a program for you and your friends.  This is an opportunity for women to learn while they enjoy a three-course meal created by Chef Katie Routh and accompanied by appropriate teas.

Concurrent with the meal are readings and an activity from the early pages of the women’s section of Wallaces’ Farmer magazine. Nancy Cantwell Wallace, grandmother of Henry A. Wallace, edited the Hearts & Homes pages from 1892 to 1909. More than just recipes and household tips, Mrs. Wallace encouraged her readers—women, men, and children— to contribute their views on a variety of issues such as women’s suffrage, school lunches, and education in rural areas.

Cost is $20 per person. Advance reservations are required. Groups such as Questers, Red Hat ladies, and garden clubs are welcome.
