Event Description

Hearts & Homes Historic Teas combine a delicious 3-course lunch with a program of readings from the historic pages of the women’s section of Wallaces’ Farmer magazine. The program is held at the Wallace House, in the same rooms where Nancy Wallace edited her Hearts & Homes column from 1895 to 1909. Nancy’s column provided sound advice and thought-provoking commentary still useful today.

Scheduled throughout the year, teas are open to the general public by reservation.  Some of the recipes on our menus are from the pages of the Hearts & Homes column and nearly all the fruits and vegetables are grown at the Wallace Farm. Other ingredients are locally sourced whenever possible. Please let us know about dietary restrictions and accessibility needs in advance.
