Historical Society announces 20th annual English Tea

The Palm Harbor Historical Society is making plans for its 20th annual English Tea.

PALM HARBOR – The Palm Harbor Historical Society announces its 20th annual English Tea on Saturday, March 2.

Attendees are invited to select their seating preference of either Morning Tea, 11:30 a.m. or Afternoon Tea at 2:30 p.m. Hats are encouraged for the ladies but are not required. A prize will be given to the lady with the most original hat at each seating. 

Scheduled to be held at the Palm Harbor Museum located in the Hartley house built circa 1915 by Judge Thomas William Hartley who settled in Palm Harbor in the early 1880s, the event features a historic setting with welcoming service and fine company.

“Guests will be transported to the elegance of England, be served on tastefully decorated tables set with classic china, be served an array of delectable sweet and savory treats with the finest English Black Tea and receive a special favor,” a news release said. 

Because of limited seating, reservations are required. Tickets are $35 per person for the annual Fundraiser. For tickets, call the museum at 727-724-3054 or stop by during museum hours, Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or purchase online at www.palmharbormuseum.com. Online ticket sales on our website are available this month.

All proceeds benefit the Palm Harbor Museum, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation, interpretation and presentation of the rich historical heritage of the Palm Harbor area including Crystal Beach, Curlew, East Lake, Ozona and Wall Springs.
