The Friends of Poplar Hill Mansion will present a very special Federal Period Tea to honor the Hustons, the first family living in the Mansion in 1805. Our servers will be dressed in Federal apparel as the family would have worn at the time, and guests are welcome to come as you are or dress in the clothing of the Federal period. The tea will include period food: White Soup, Ham on Sweet Potato Biscuits, Cucumber Sandwiches, Egg Salad with Dill on Mini Corn Muffins, Honey Oat Scones with jam and homemade clotted cream, White Potato Pie (a Maryland staple), Newport Lady Cakes, Queen Cakes, Jumbles, and Earl Grey Tea. Door Prizes and lots of fun! The cost is $22.00 per person. Seating is limited, so be sure to make your reservation as soon as possible.
