HISTORIC AFTERNOON TEA, Saturday, September 12, 2 to 4 pm, at the Museum, 86 Obeds Lane. Free admission, donations accepted. The Museum celebrates the 25th anniversary of Capriccio, serving an array of cakes, sandwiches and a special selection of aromatic teas in the elegant style of Ogunquit’s historic tearooms.
In the early 1900’s many well to do people spent the summer in Ogunquit, sometimes amusing themselves by taking afternoon tea at one of Ogunquit’s many tea rooms. They enjoyed bucolic views, fine china and delicious cakes, delicate sandwiches and a special selection of flavorful teas. On their way out, they might pick up a postcard or a gift for a friend.
The museum will bring back some of the nostalgia of those lazy summer afternoons with their afternoon tea and savory delights. Come enjoy their offerings and browse through their current exhibits, gardens and the Dorothea Jacobs Grant Park.
