Historic Dinners & Teas

Each year, Living History Farms invites guests to dinner at one of the museum’s historic homes. Much more than a meal, you’ll step back in time to get a glimpse of life in the past and a taste of history!

Age recommendations are based on the length of time guests are expected to remain seated at a table. Any child who will not be held in a lap will require a ticket.

Please watch for dinners to resume in fall 2022.
