A Victorian Tea & Tour

This is a year-round favorite for everyone who enjoys tea!     

You will take a guided tour of our historic village, including the Victorian home of the Landis Brothers, founders of the museum.  Then you’ll enjoy a Victorian Tea featuring herbal teas, homemade tea sandwiches, scones with Devonshire cream and lemon curd, and a lovely assortment of desserts.  All this is served in our historic 1856 Landis Valley House Hotel.
