Many gatherings have taken place on these grounds over the last 220 years.  On June 19, 1896 Mary Armstrong Elliott Beaver, also known as Grandma Beaver, recorded in her diary that the ladies of Centre Furnace Mansion hosted a tea party on the lawn.

A sincere Thank You to all who attended our Victorian Tea at the Centre Furnace Mansion on June 22nd.  It was a beautiful afternoon spent among friends old and new.

A special Thank You to the Ladies of Battery B, Olivia Perdew for her work on the Veiled Arts of Victorian Women exhibit and programming, and the CCHS volunteers and bakers.
