The Carson City Historical Society will be hosting a by-reservation-only “Downton Abbey Tea” on Sunday, June 12, 2022, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Foreman-Roberts Carriage House, 1207 North Carson Street, Carson City, Nevada 89703. There is no special costume required. However, if you have an old-fashioned broach, hat, boa or other item to show off and tell the history about, that would be delightful.

Our special guest for the tea will be Rebecca Van Sickle who will be doing a dressing presentation, focused on the 1860s with a crinoline-style day dress. She will talk about each of the layers of clothing and provide some interesting history along the way.

Reservations can be made by check. Cost of the tea is $42.00 per person for Carson City Historical Society non-member; cost for a Carson City Historical Society member is $37; and if you have been to Downton Abbey, and are willing to tell us about your experience, the cost is $27 per person. Please indicate on your check whether you are a member, nonmember, or have been to Downton Abbey. Space is limited to 25 people. Checks can be made out to the Carson City Historical Society and sent to 112 North Curry, Carson City, NV 89703. Early reservations are encouraged and must be sent in by June 3, 2022.
