    The Joel Lane Museum House, “The Birthplace of North
    Carolina’s Capital City,” will present Lizzie Lane’s Colonial Tea on Sunday, April
    21, 2013 from 3 to 5 pm with a rain date of Sunday, April 28. Elizabeth was Colonel
    Joel Lane’s seventh child. He was a founding father of Raleigh and an officer
    in the Militia during the American Revolutionary War.
    In the beautiful colonial style gardens at the Joel Lane
    Museum House, mothers, daughters, grandmothers, and granddaughters will learn
    the etiquette of taking tea and cakes in colonial times. After tea, they will
    have a chance to participate in early American crafts and games. The strains of
    live music will fill the air.
    As they sip on tea or lemonade and eat either 18th-century style or modern cakes, attendees will learn
    the history of tea and how colonial people took their tea. After tea, the girls
    can play games like graces, dance the Virginia Reel, make a rag doll, decorate
    a paper fan, or “tin” punch a Christmas ornament.

    sold out early for the last two years.
