Girl Scout Tea & Tour
Enjoy a "Victorian tea" like Girl
Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low might have served in 1912 at the
first Girl Scout meeting.
Tour the Falcon Rest Mansion and hear amusing
stories about the Faulkner family who lived there 100 years ago.
Tours are tailored to age group of your troop,
from Daisies to Seniors.
Girls have fun while learning that history
isn't dry names and dates; it's about real people like them who
lived in a different time.
Tea is served in the Victorian Tea Room, with
menus ranging from a simple tea with cookies and lemonade to a formal
afternoon tea of hot scones with cream and jam, tea sandwiches,
fruit, assorted sweets, and hot spiced tea or lemonade.
Boy Scouts love Falcon Rest, too ...
For Cub Scouts and older boys, history comes
alive with stories of the five Faulkner children, a tour of their
family's mansion, and old-fashioned games on the grounds. (Let us
know if a few ghost stories would be appropriate for your group!)
Add a "Coney dog," fries, and pink
lemonade like the Faulkner children might have enjoyed on a trip
to an 1890s amusement park.
For groups of 20 or more, age 11 and up,
consider one of our interactive history-based shows where your
Scouts become the stars.
