Roxbury Mother-Daughter Afternoon Tea       

Tea Party Small 2 (1).jpg
The Afternoon Tea was usually hosted by the lady of the house; it was a social event for friends to gather, talk and share refreshments before dinner. It became a luxury tradition with delicate fine china, pastries and sandwiches.

Join us as we open our house for you to share in this tradition! 

Treat your mother, grandmother, or guardian to a special afternoon tea. Come enjoy music, refreshments, and a tour of the Royal Governor's mansion built in 1747. There is no cost for participation.

To join us, we ask that you submit a brief statement about why you would like to bring your mother, grandmother, or guardian to the Afternoon Tea as your guest. Please also include your name, email, and phone number in your statement.
