Visitors will have the opportunity to tour the museum, learn about the Chase-Loockerman family who lived here in the Federal Era, and have a traditional high tea in the garden.

Guests are encouraged to bring a copy of their favorite Jane Austen novel as there will be a discussion during tea regarding Ms. Austen’s popular literature written during this time period. Sweets are provided by Ms. Nancy’s Fancy Bakery in Annapolis. Tea is generously provided by Capital Teas.
