Here’s your chance to learn about Valentine’s Day traditions and Dayton history while sipping a cup of tea.
Dayton History is hosting A Valentine’s Victorian Afternoon Tea at the Patterson Homestead on Feb. 3.
Costumed historic interpreters will serve tea and a three-course meal during the event held at the former home of Revolutionary War soldier Col. Robert Patterson. John H. Patterson, the founder of National Cash Register, was raised at the homestead.
The tea series is themed around Civil War-era Dayton. In keeping with the spirit of the season, this event will teach visitors about Victorian era Valentine’s Day traditions.
Reservations are required and space is limited for this event. An Irish Tea will be held March 3 and a Mother’s Day Tea will be held May 5.
