    Ever wonder how the first First Lady entertained her guests? What is the proper way to hold a teacup with no handles? Here is your chance to experience history with Martha Washington as she discusses 18th century tea customs as well as clothing of the period. 18th century tea includes the museum's special blend of tea, pound cake, dried fruit, and assortment of cookies. Ideal for Girl Scout groups (etiquette helps meet some badge requirements) and families with kids grades 2nd and older. Party attire requested.
