Twilight Tour: Dining Through History
Friday, August 19, 2016, 4:30pm-8pm
Visit 9 historic sites "after-hours" as they present "Dining Through History," a glimpse into the history of dining. Tickets are $20 ($18 in advance); children 12 & under $10 ($8 in advance). Tickets are available at all historic sites and online at www.strawberybanke.org. Tickets are valid for the remainder of the 2016 season for admission to participating museums (a $67 value!).
Tour the Moffatt-Ladd House and learn about the history of dining of the Moffatts, Whipples, and Ladds, as well as a modern view of dining through the eyes of Linda Carrigan and Bob Withington of Withington Antiques, and Joyce Jordan of Joyce Jordan Interiors. They will each take a room and create their own vision of dining, inspired by the Moffatt-Ladd House. We're thrilled to be partnering with these talented local businesses and can't wait to see what they create.
