THE ROSEMOUNT MANSION IN PUEBLO, COLORADO


Today we went for a ride south down to Pueblo, Colorado.  We drove by the 37 room mansion built in 1893 which was the home of John A. and Margaret Thatcher.  I took a couple photos to share and will let you know they serve Afternoon Tea in the Carriage House for special events several times a year.



The home (museum) was not open to visitors today.



Here is the carriage house where teas are held:  the next tea is a Madhatter Tea coming up.

Rosemount Mad Hatter Tea Party: will be held on Sunday, May 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Carriage House Restaurant at Rosemount. Cost is $30 per person and all proceeds will benefit the museum. The Mad Hatter will be on hand and a "Best Hat" contest will be held. There will be door prizes. For more information contact the museum at  1-719-545-5290. This would make a great Mother's Day gift!




After noting how lush and green these photos are, I thought I better mention it is 10 degrees warmer in Pueblo than where I live and springtime was definitely advanced here.  Last night it even snowed a little during the night where I live!

I just love visiting historic homes! This one is a beauty. Going to tea is already a special experience, but having tea in this type of setting really elevates the experience. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.

Wow that house looks like out of a story book. Shame you didn't get to go inside. Must be interesting to see what iti is like inside.
I can't believe it is still snowing in your area. Looking forward to seeing your beautiful spring garden Bernideen.

Hope you have a wonderful week

I wish I lived close by so that I could attend the tea, Bernideen! It looks like a lovely spot.

Hi my friend: You were right. My first cup was from England. I did not even know that Lefton was made in England too. I thought they were all from Japan. I have a good collection, I will have to check. Thanks for stopping by. I wish we could have looked inside this home. Looks fun. Have a great week. Hugs, Martha
