Gene Stratton-Porter Autumn Tea
Sept. 26; noon – 4 p.m.; $25 per person; reservations required by Sept. 18
Experience the elegance of days gone by at our annual autumn tea. Enjoy lovingly-baked delicacies such as savory snacks and sweets, a variety of teas and a guest speaker. Before tea time, take a guided tour of Gene’s Cabin and formal gardens. If you choose to wear your “tea-time best” make sure your attire includes appropriate walking shoes. Festive hats are part of our tradition!

Oct. 16 & 17; 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.; $4 per person
This annual event is suitable for all ages and is more about the fun of Halloween – treats not tricks! At this event, you’ll learn about owls, bats, raccoons, snakes and other creatures of the night. Children are encouraged to attend in costume and enjoy treats at various stops along the way. Be sure to dress for the weather and bring a flashlight to guide your way! This is a rain or shine event.

“A Dream of Beauty” Holiday Walk
Dec. 6; 2 – 7 p.m.; $5 per person
See the Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site when it’s all decked out for the holidays. Gene’s Cabin will be open and decorated according to her description of the Christmas of 1917, which she called “A Dream of Beauty.” Guests can enjoy live entertainment, holiday goodies, crafts, and horse-drawn wagon rides around the property. Santa will arrive in a very special way at 2 p.m. and will visit with children and families so bring your list! New this year is a Gingerbread Cabin decorating contest. Contact the Site for more information.
