ESSEX FELLS, NJ — In celebration of Caldwell’s President Grover Cleveland’s 180th birthday anniversary, the borough invites the public to attend a “White House Tea Social” on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., hosted by the President and First Lady Frances Folsom Cleveland, at the Undercroft of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Essex Fells.

Guests are encouraged to participate in an informative talk by historian and professor emeritus of Drew University, Dr. David Cowell on “Fine Dining in the 19th Century” as they dine on on teacakes, sandwiches, scones, and freshly brewed teas. Food and refreshments will be served by hostesses in costume of the period—in style with the traditional Victorian Era and modeled after actual White House receptions.

To enhance the experience, there will also be a newly acquired, rare wax museum figures on display for the first time of First Ladies Rose Elizabeth and Frances Folsom, who served in President Cleveland’s two terms (1885-89 & 1893-97), each outfitted in their inaugural finery. Additionally, specially selected collectable items from the Grover Cleveland Birthplace Museum Shop will be presented and available for purchase.
