Holidays Around the World Afternoon Tea - Montpelier Mansion

Montpelier Mansion, a National Historic Landmark, is one of the finest examples of 18th century Georgian architecture in the state. Large trees and boxwood grace the landscape which features a rare surviving 18th century summer house.

Ann Ridgely and "Major" Thomas Snowden, each a member of prominent Maryland families, married in 1774. In 1781, the couple commissioned the building of Montpelier, a five-part Georgian home near present-day Laurel in Prince George's County, Maryland. Situated upon a high knoll above the Patuxent River, the site commanded an unequaled view. Two firebacks in the house are inscribed "TSA 1783" indicating the owners and probable completion year of the mansion.

"Treat yourself and someone special to the elegant but relaxing atmosphere of Montpelier's Afternoon Teas. Indulge in fine finger sandwiches, scrumptious pastries, buttery scones and a selection of loose leaf teas, served on imported English china and tiered silver stands."

We'll meet at the visitor center at 2:45 then take the self guided tour, no docents available this day. Free parking on site.

Our Afternoon Tea seating time is 4 PM, scheduled for 2 hours. We will be in the company of up to 30 other tea loving folks.

Please consider coming along then RSVP w/payment before the event sells out. Thank you.

Cost is $27.50 for the tour and tea; $3 meetup & amazon fees for a total of $30.50. Please read the refund policy. Thank you.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
