Lunch Bunch Plus
Wednesday, June 8
Phelps-Hatheway House & Garden - Lunch at Three Figs
Suffield, CT
 
Woman's Club members, we'll be off again to see this CT Landmarks property on Wednesday, June 8.  Enjoy a guided tour of the Phelps-Hatheway House that examines the lives and experiences of the first two owners, Shem Burbank and Oliver Phelps. Although the two lived during the same period, they experienced the events of the late 18th century in very different ways, as did their fortunes, or lack thereof, resulting from their political views on The American Revolution.

Guests will also explore the House’s outstanding architecture. The two architectural periods of the Phelps-Hatheway House further demonstrate the differences in Burbank’s and Phelp’s personalities, experiences, and times. The two parts of the house also enable us to see the changes in taste, style, and availability of goods that took place between the colonial and federal periods. If our group exceeds 15, we will split into two groups.

The tour fee is $10 in a check payable to FWWC and returned with the coupon below (or write out your own) by Friday, June 3 to either the MA office or to Anne Fitzgerald, 51 Byron Dr, Avon, CT 06001.

We will leave the upper clubhouse parking lot at 10:00 a.m. to arrive in time for our one hour 11:00 a.m. tour. Please plan on giving your driver $3.00 in cash toward fuel.
Lunch will follow at Three Figs, a new culinary creation of eclectic dining.
