Hannah’s Tea Place is Becoming a Family Affair

The Fredericton Region Museum is excited to announce the launch of the 5th annual Hannah’s Tea Place – but this year there’s a twist! Since Hannah is out of town for the summer visiting her aunt, her father will be looking after the Tea Place. Join Benjamin Ingraham at the Officers’ Quarters for an afternoon of irresistible iced tea, scrumptious snickerdoodle cookies, and engaging tales of life as a Loyalist in Ste. Anne’s Point. If you’re feeling crafty, you can even try your hand at rug hooking, one of Benjamin’s favourite pass times. Hannah’s dad will be at the Museum all summer long, and would love to have you drop by to enjoy some tasty treats, unique crafts, and stories about the life of a New Brunswick Loyalist.

Hannah’s Tea Place runs every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoon from 1:00 to 4:00 PM for the months of July and August. You can find Benjamin upstairs on the balcony of the Fredericton Region Museum, located at 571 Queen Street on the edge of Officers’ Square. As part of a community social project, all of Benjamin’s rug hooking projects will be donated to the Greener Village Community Food Centre. Any donations of yarn or burlap would be much appreciated (contact us at 455-6041).

About frederictonregionmuseum

The Fredericton Region Museum was founded in 1934 by the York-Sunbury Historical Society. The Society was formed in 1932 and now has members from all over North America, however, most are from Central New Brunswick. In 1969 the Museum found permanent headquarters in the Officer's Quarters (571 Queen Street) in the heart of downtown Fredericton. The Society and Museum remain a nonprofit enterprise with a small paid staff and numerous volunteers. They work tirelessly to create informative exhibits, organize programs and events as well as publish a local history periodical The Officers' Quarters. The Fredericton Region Museum is the home of the famous Coleman Frog. He is the 42lb wonder that lived in the Killarney Lake just north of Fredericton about 100 years ago. The Fredericton Region Museum is a gateway into the exciting history and diverse heritage of central New Brunswick. Because central New Brunswick is where the provincial capital is located, and because it served as a meeting place for Aboriginals, Loyalists, Acadian, and other European settlers, the Fredericton Region Museum is an excellent place to start. With over 4000 square feet of exhibit space and a collection of over 30,000 artefacts the museum is a fun and exciting way to look into our past.
