4th Annual Costumed Tea
Market Square Day
at the Warner House
is this
Saturday June 10, 2017,
12:00-3:00.


Captain Archibald and his Lady Sarah Wentworth Macpheadris invite you to join them for an afternoon entertainment celebrating the ongoing 300th anniversary of the construction of their grand house.
 
To commemorate this event, we have set the principal rooms at a gastronomic moment in history—evening dining from 1720s-1910s —business repasts of the early and late 18th century.
 
To enhance your experience, garments laden with stories—such as ladies shoes and dresses, and even Jonathan Warner’s plum-red coat and vest—will be laid out in the rooms in anticipation of its wearer’s return.
 
At 2 PM, members of the Royal Scottish Country Dancers will perform simple dances for your edification and ask you to join them.
 
There will be light refreshments and croquet. Rumor has it that several guests have created new fashions for this event.

Please join us for this special year with the house appointed to entertain you as it has for countless past guests.
 
Please join us for this annual fete as we open our doors to the public to enjoy the 1st floor of the house and the gardens.

Admission is free.

The Warner House is turning 300 this season!

Older than many towns in New Hampshire, the Warner House is truly a remarkable survivor, narrowly avoiding first the paths of two devastating early-19th-century fires and then its imminent demolition in the early 20th century for a gas station.  The museum opens on June 1st!  For more information, check out the Calendar of Events.
