Mother’s Day festivities to take place at historic Baltimore home

May 3, 2013 by  

Mothers in the Baltimore area are invited to attend a special event in their honor. During the second weekend in May, the Mount Clare Mansion and Museum House will be hosting a Mother’s Day tour and tea party.

Brochure printers are likely being put to use as the organizers of this function prepare informational materials for visitors.

The mansion dates back to the 1760s and was the first house in Maryland to be turned into a museum. Nearly 3,000 original items from the 18th and 19th centuries are on display on the premises.

The colonial-era plantation home is well-known for its art collection, which includes imported pieces from England and China, as well as portraits of its former owners, the Carrolls. Attendees will have a chance to view all of these objects firsthand and ask questions about the mansion’s history. The tour is expected to last just over 45 minutes.

After the walkthrough, visitors will be ushered into the Mount Clare Stable to sit down for tea. Finger sandwiches and baked sweets will be provided. Although mothers will be the focus of this event, spouses and children are also encouraged to attend as well.

The tour and tea party will take place on Saturday, May 11. The activities will begin at 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm. Preregistration is required and the cost will be $15 per person.

The Mount Clare Mansion and Museum House is located at 1500 Washington Boulevard. Those who would like to make reservations or learn more information may call (410) 837-3262 ext. 101.
