SOUTH BEND — In celebration of the 125th anniversary of Copshaholm, The History Museum is holding a special tea from noon to 2 p.m. May 14 at 808 W. Washington St.

At “Miss Oliver’s Tea,” attendees will be seated at round tables of eight in the Leighton Gallery, decorated with themes reminiscent of the elegant teas hosted by Anna, Gertrude and Catherine Oliver in Copshaholm in the early 1900s.

The menu includes classic teas as well as savories and sweets catered by the Oliver Inn Bed and Breakfast. The tea is followed by a private tour of the first floor of the Oliver Mansion, where actors portraying Gertrude and Catherine will greet participants, who are also invited to stroll the Historic Oliver Gardens.

The Oliver family moved into Copshaholm, now part of The History Museum, on January 1, 1897.

Reservations are required by May 10.

Tickets are $30-$5.
