Our annual Ladies High Tea is held in the spring at the Quaker Heights Retirement Home behind the museum.  This event is an elegant afternoon of tea, great food, and entertainment.

In 2011 the theme of the tea was Remembering Civil War Ladies, highlighting the often overlooked contributions of women during the American Civil War.

In 2012 the theme of the tea was Magical Moments, featuring a live magician.
