Nettie was the youngest daughter of the Henry H Landis family here in late 1800s Lancaster County. Her older sister had died at a very early age, and Nettie became the sole sister in the family, adored by father and brothers alike. Unlike most of her peers, she went to college. She also lived in Brooklyn, NY for a short time, attending school there. Sadly, Nettie contracted tuberculosis and finally passed away in her early adulthood, having never married.
During her short life, she became an accomplished decorator of porcelain, a passionate photographer, and even did oil paintings that still adorn the “brothers’ house.” She also shared much of her brothers’ passion for collecting.
For this casual tea, Nettie (as portrayed by one of our talented re-enactors) will serve tea during the luncheon and share stories about her very interesting experiences, including her correspondence with other photographers all around the world.
You will also be treated to some behind-the-scenes tour stops that are not generally open to the public.
Come prepared for an entertaining and relaxing afternoon with the always colorful Nettie.
Get your tickets early, because seating is limited due to space.
