    Join us on Sunday, May 17th, 2020 at the Havilah Beardsley House for one of our famous teas – with a unique twist! This suffragette-themed tea will combine both educational history and the chance for smart women to gather together and celebrate. Dress up in the clothes of the suffragette era and take photos, enjoy tea from a tea company founded and owned by a woman, and play a few games that will teach you a thing or two about women’s history. We’ll have prizes, exclusive gifts, and, yes, even a designated place where you can smoke your cigars like the rebellious women you are. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to step into the shoes of a suffragette!

    $25 Non-Member Adults, $20 Members and $10 Students.

    Reservations required with advance purchase or call 574-264-0330 ext. 104. Ages 4 and up.  *(registration deadline is May 9th)
