The celebration of Mother’s Day in the United States began during the Gilded Age, when in May 1914, Congress established it as a National Holiday. In the spirit of this tradition, mothers and their families are invited each year to the Railcar 91 Tea Room to enjoy a Gilded Age-style Tea Service in the Flagler Kenan Pavilion. Guests may also enjoy touring Whitehall and Railcar No. 91 before or after their tea service, and capture photographic memories. We recommend to dress to impress in celebration of the special day!

The prix-fixe menu includes a selection of savory tea sandwiches, traditional scones, and sweets complemented by the Museum’s own Whitehall Special BlendTM tea and pink lemonade.
