NIcknamed "la belle Americaine" by the French, Elizabeth Monroe, the wife of fifth president James Monroe, was known for her elegance and style. We'll celebrate the June birthday of the lovely Mrs. Monroe with a genteel afternoon tea in the James Monroe Museum garden! Harpist and storyteller Eve Watters will perform a selection of period songs and stories, and interpreters in early-nineteenth-century costume will be on hand to serve tea and speak about the style of the time.

Space is limited, and advanced registration is required! To register, call 540/654-1043 or send e-mail to auphaus@umw.edu.
