Appalachian Spring Tea – Second Seating

April 27, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Saturday, April 27th the Museum will host our 2nd annual spring tea at “Far Horizons,” the Weatherford home in Blue Ridge Assembly. The tea will include sweet, savory, and scone courses (with homemade jam and clotted cream!) as well as bottomless cups of freshly-brewed tea. Music duo StrathSpan will perform Scottish music with an innovative flair on fiddle and cello. A short talk will also be given by Julia Weatherford, granddaughter of Dr. Willis Weatherford, Sr., founder of the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly. Ms. Weatherford will discuss the history of the Far Horizons home, her grandfather’s legacy, and her grandmother’s life. With this event, Far Horizons – completed ca. 1940 – will be open through a special one-time arrangement with the Weatherford family and Blue Ridge Assembly. 

Cost: $25 members, $35 nonmembers, $175 table of 8 (members only)
