Victorian Tea

From March through November, the Government House Historical Society hosts Victorian Tea weekends. Held each month in the beautiful Government House Ballroom, a typical tea includes three sandwiches, a fresh scone and preserves, and a dessert, all served with an endless pot of tea. Tickets for the teas go quickly, reserve yours soon!
