Gala to Benefit the Versailles Museum

“All in a Winter’s Night” is the theme for a very special evening planned at the Versailles Museum. With the end of the War of 1812 nearing and hope and optimism about our young nation ever spreading west, land in what was the Northwest Territory was being purchased. Land just outside of Fort Greenville would sell quickly and for top dollar. It was during these next ten to fifteen years that many little villages and hamlets would spring up all over this area.

To commemorate those early land purchases and visionaries who would call this area home we look forward to hosting a special dinner event at the museum. Historic interpreters will invite you to break bread and share a special dinner with a family within the area in 1814 as their guests.

This one night only dinner will be served on January 11, 2014 at the museum. From your arrival a liveryman will greet you followed by house maids to take your wraps on a cold night. Your hosts, in period dress will welcome you in for libations and appetizers as you browse through some of the museum’s gallery’s. At seven you will be invited into our candle lighted banquet room where a delicious four course meal will be offered.

Beautiful music and lively conversation in an exquisite setting is sure to make for an unforgettable evening.

Dinner is limited to only fifty guests at $50.00 per ticket with all proceeds to benefit the museum. Reservations are on a first come bases and may be made now through January 1st.

The menu will consist of a first course of warm squash soup, followed by glazed ham, roasted young turkey with dressing, glazed sweet potatoes and green beans with ham, To compliment the feast, pickles, eggs and red beets and homemade breads and a glass of wine will be served. A cheese course with breads and dried fruits will follow. The meal will be completed with a dessert course of cherry crisp, mixed nuts, a dessert wine, coffee or tea.

You do not want to miss this opportunity to travel back in time before our village was here to see what a warm and delightful evening you might have enjoyed on the frontier of western Ohio, “All In a Winter’s Night”.
