Tudor Nights
Thursday, June 20th
6:00 – 8:00PM

For nearly a century at Tudor Place, seasonal bounty filled pots, pitchers and plates. Food grown here fed the Peter family members as well as household workers. Urbanization and specialization led to change, and the land turned to ornamental uses, but food and farming remain anchored in the object collection and archives.

On Thursday, June 20th, join Tudor Place in recalling the ways of self-sustaining agriculture on one of the nation’s last intact urban estates. From 6 to 8 p.m., enjoy evening hours in the mansion, including a close-up look at three collections items, as well as “bountiful” summer snacks and libations in the Dower House.

Advanced registration required. Entry includes touring the mansion and gardens, light refreshments, two bar beverages per guest and signature cocktail.

Members: Complimentary. Non-members: $20. Click here to register.
