About this event:

Indulge in the autumn charm of Ford House’s Fall Tea & Tour!

Join us for an afternoon steeped in sophistication. Enjoy a classic tea with a sumptuous three-tiered service showcasing autumn’s finest flavors—delicate finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones, tantalizing desserts, and a selection of premium teas await your arrival.

After tea, wander through the storied halls of the Main Residence, adorned with history and opulence, on a self-paced exploration.

Due to the nature of this event, we cannot accommodate menu/dietary restrictions or substitutions.

What to wear?

It’s a great excuse to wear your favorite hat or party dress, but you may want to wear shoes comfortable enough to walk the grounds and up and down stairs.


We are thrilled to welcome back The Beaute Loft and The Peacock Room! Both businesses will offer pop-up shopping at the tea. Plus, you’re invited to explore The Shop at Ford House for the perfect Mother’s Day gift!


Seating is sold by table.
