Spilling the Tea
An Afternoon with Three of Ohio's First Ladies

Pick up delicious treats to go at The Hickories and then join us online for our annual Valentine Tea featuring Ohio's First Ladies!

It's time for tea! History has long been a collection of stories recorded by men, about men. LCHS often likes to turn the tables at our annual Valentine Tea and celebrate women, and this year is no exception.

On Sunday, February 14, pick up three courses of savory and sweet tea treats packaged conveniently to-go from The Hickories Museum. Then join us at 2:00 PM when three former First Ladies, fellow Ohioans, meet and “spill the tea.” Julia Grant, Ida McKinley and Florence Harding suspend time and space to come together on Valentine's Day over a nice cup of tea, sharing stories of courtship, marriage, and some very juicy gossip. This online program will be provided by Women in History, a local group that celebrates the stories of notable American women with dramatic portrayals in costume and character.  Tickets are $27 per person and include one tea meal plus access to the online program. For an added $5 fee, meals can be delivered. There is also a program-only registration option for $10.
