Victorian High Tea
For a Mother’s Day to be remembered, bring mom to Pioneer Farms on Sunday, May 12, to see how Texans celebrated this special day more than a century ago — and to see the gorgeous wildflowers in bloom on the Blackland Prairie of Central Texas.
For this one day only, all moms and their children can get attend a special Victorian-era high tea at our 1880s Cotton Planter’s Farm. Tea will be served from 1-5. There’ll also be a fashion show throughout the afternoon of 1800s attire.
Pioneer Farms has some other special things for mothers to see, as well. At our four historic sites, you can see how Texas women once lived — from the 1840s Tonkawa Camp on the primitive frontier to the 1880s Cotton Planter’s Farm during the Victorian era.
Activities will include historical demonstrations, reenactments at our historical sites and fun and games for kids of all ages, plus a special program on women in Texas history.
Plan to come early and spend the afternoon!
Schedule: Gates open at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. Tea served hourly beginning at 1 p.m.
Admission: $10 per person.
