It’s Tea Time

April 7, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


In letters written home to his wife Katherine while serving in the Revolutionary War, General Edward Hand would address her as “My Dearest Kitty.” Later, as the mistress of Rock Ford Plantation, “Kitty Hand” hosted many elegant teas for family and friends. During Rock Ford’s children’s event “It’s Tea Time” on Sunday, April 7 from 2 pm to 4 pm, Kitty Hand welcomes guests to an afternoon tea at Rock Ford, featuring delightful desserts, tea tasting and etiquette fun such as the Language of the Fan. Guests are encouraged to wear fancy accessories such as gloves, hats and jewelry. After the tea, guests will be led on a short tour of the Rock Ford mansion to “find the hidden tea cups” in the mansion’s rooms.

This event will be held rain or shine in the Rock Ford barn and mansion. In the event of rain, guests are asked to bring umbrellas as they will be walking from the barn to the mansion.

Reservations may be made by clicking here. Cost is $10 per child and $12 per adult. The reservation deadline is Friday, April 5. This event is recommended for children ages 5 and up and their family members. Children must be accompanied by at least one responsible adult.
