Step back in time and experience a Colonial American Tea Party.
The Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Association, in partnership with Scott County 250 and Natural Tunnel State Park, is hosting a Colonial Era Tea Party featuring renowned historian and interpreter Pam Eddy. Ms. Eddy had 27 years of experience as a historic interpreter with the National Park Service at Cumberland Gap and now operates her own independent business in Cumberland Gap, Tennessee.
The Tea Party will feature the period of tea made famous in 1773 by the Boston Tea Party and will include historic interpretations of the social and political issues surrounding that event. Attendees are welcome to dress in period attire and bring their own heirloom tea cups if desired. The program is geared toward those 18 and over. Three tea servings are planned along with “biscuits.”
The Tea Party will be held at The Daniel Boone Interpretive Center, 371 Technology Trail Ln., Duffield, Va.; on Sunday, October 1st from 2pm till 4pm. Sitting is limited and advanced registration is encouraged.
Tickets are $20.00 in advance or $25.00 at the door, if available. Seating is limited to 50 people.
Come and sip a cup of Colonial Bohea tea, hear the sordid history of the British East India Tea Company, and learn “proper tea etiquette “ of the era.
