A Teaworthy Toast to Dolley Madison

Dolley Madison for Events Calendar

Let’s enjoy the delights of high tea at the O. Henry Hotel in a style that First Lady Dolley Madison would have appreciated. For we are remembering her bravery 200 years ago, during August 23-24, 1814, when Dolley was in the White House as the British approached. She set the table for a fine dinner, anxiously awaiting good news from President Madison and his troops. That was not to be. You know part of the rest, as we toast Dolley’s bravery, in the company of friends, you’ll find out more about that drama-filled day so long ago.

Tickets $30, inclusive, available by mailing checks to the museum at 130 Summit Ave., 27401. Table sponsorships, with 6 seats, available for $200, by contacting Director Carol Hart at 373-2306. Reservation deadline is Friday, August 8.
