Victorian Tea: “Annie Oakley, Aim for a High Mark!”
Annie Oakley was probably the most famous woman of her day. She and professional partner Buffalo Bill Cody were the first international superstars. In addition to being an expert sharpshooter, Oakley was also a proponent of safe working conditions; fair and equal pay for days worked regardless of gender or heritage, and supported many young girls through school at her own expense. Her motto was to “Aim for a high mark…for practice will make you perfect,” and her hope was that all women would reach the “Bulls-eye of Success.” Join actress Kim Hanley as she brings Annie Oakley to life. Enjoy tea, sandwiches, scones and desserts, all served by period dressed servants on the Pennypacker mansion porch. Tea Registration form
All ages; fee: $40 per person, by pre-registration
