The teas take place in the restored lower level rooms of the George H. Clayson House, 224 E. Palatine Road, Palatine. In 1867, Clayson purchased 10 acres of land from Palmer Webster, land that encompassed the entire block surrounded by Palatine Road, Northwest Highway, Wood Street and Oak Street.

He used this property as a nursery where he grew fruit trees and grapes. In 1869, he was elected a trustee by the village board to fill a vacancy. The 1870 census shows that he lived on Benton Street with his mother, wife, and two children, Frank and Charles. In 1873, Clayson contracted to build the house on his property that is now the Clayson House Museum; it cost approximately $2,300.

Victorian tea tickets are $25 per person and this event sells out annually. For tickets or information, contact the Palatine Historical Society at (847) 991-6460.

The mission of Palatine Park District is to provide a variety of safe, enjoyable and affordable parks and recreation facilities and activities that will enhance the quality of life by promoting good health and well-being for all residents and visitors of the Palatine Park District.
