Dressing for Tea with Mrs. Chapman

May 5, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT


Serving Tea in the Chapman-Hall House

Dressing for Tea with Mrs. Chapman brings to you a look at the changes in fashion styles for women and men from 1750 to the late 1820s. Interwoven with the clothing details will be historical insights to taking tea.

In 1754, Miriam Chapman, with her husband Nathaniel, braved the wilds of unsettled midcoast Maine to establish a new home. Miriam was 47, the Damariscotta settlement was very young. One can imagine the pleasures and comforts Miriam left behind in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Despite the lack of a bustling town in her new surroundings, chances are Miriam found a friend to take tea with and discuss the fashion of the day.

This fun, special program will be presented over ZOOM on May 5th at 6:30 PM. With your registration you will receive recipes for traditional tea fare, a list of tea varieties popular in the 18th and 19th centuries, and a list of foods suitable for any early American tea for your next tea – all delivered by e-mail. Dressing for Tea with Mrs. Chapman is a benefit for the Chapman-Hall House Historic Site in Damariscotta. Registration is $15.
