On Tuesday, June 6 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the Windsor Historical Society invites guests to enjoy a spot of tea with a spoonful of history as the Society looks back on the tea room craze of the 1920s.  Central Connecticut State University graduate student Rachel Friedman will present a short talk on the Windsor Historical Society’s Betsy Kob Tea Room, an establishment the Society ran in the historic Strong House between 1925 and 1928.  Guests will snack on cookies and tea as Rachel describes the everyday running of the Society’s tea room and links the tea room to the larger issues of women’s history and historic preservation. Guests are also invited to take a tea room-themed tour of the Strong House led by Society curator Erin Stevic. Admission is free to all.
