Join the staff at Loghurst Museum from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturdays or Sundays for an afternoon tea celebrating “A Civil War Cup of Tea,” Loghurst’s collaboration with the Arms Museum of the Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s exhibition of teacups and tea sets, including the Wick tea service. Women’s period clothing and accessories will also be on display.
The traditional afternoon tea includes a recitation of the Gettysburg Address, a description of life during the Civil War by a re-enactor from the 105th Ohio Volunteer Infantry and stories about taking tea and the history of tea cups by Lea Mollman, Registrar of the Arms Museum of the Mahoning Valley Historical Society.
Each mother and child will receive a reproduction teacup and saucer, corsage and a special tour of the log-hewn home. Children will also receive a Civil War paper doll to color and play with.
“A Civil War Cup of Tea,” runs through May 25. Hours are Saturdays and Sundays, 1 to 4 p.m. or by appointment. For more information, please contact Gayle Wanamaker, 614-578-2823 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
