Ring in the New Year with an old-fashioned tea hosted by the Gunn Historical Museum in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Library from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on December 31. Guests will have the opportunity to socialize with friends under the historic 1914 gilded ceiling mural by H. Siddons Mowbray and enjoy period music in the festively decorated room.

Guests of this soiree will be able to browse through Washington photograph albums that will be out for browsing. Guests will have great fun trying to help museum staff identify  the people and places in the images.

Guests are asked to bring their favorite tea cup; and museum staff will  provide the tea sandwiches and cookies. The tea party is free and open to the public, but registration is required as space is limited. To register please email your name(s) to: or call 860-868-7756.
