Event Details

Join us for a 19th century afternoon tea at the historic Patterson Homestead. The Patterson Homestead (est. 1816) is the former home of Revolutionary War soldier and Lexington, KY founder Colonel Robert Patterson and NCR founder John H. Patterson.

Your afternoon begins with a tradition that spans several generations: the afternoon tea. This tradition has its roots in England, where it quickly spread and became a treasured pastime for women in Victorian America. At the Patterson Homestead, we serve in the style of the traditional afternoon tea: three delicious courses consisting of breads, sandwiches, and desserts, all based upon historic Victorian-era recipes. Guests are welcome to try two varieties of our loose-leaf teas, a black tea and herbal tea chosen especially for the themed tea program.

Sit back and enjoy as you learn about the Patterson family, the historic Homestead, and life in Victorian America. After the tea, you are welcome to tour the Patterson Homestead at your leisure, with costumed interpreters available to answer any questions you may have.

The program will take place between 2:00pm and 4:00pm. Guests shall meet at the banquet hall entrance into the Patterson Homestead, where they will be greeted by a costumed interpreter. It is strongly recommended that you arrive 15 mintues early.
