(Please read the introductory section about Candle Tea.)
The special “School Tea” in the historic Single Brothers House in Old Salem includes a candle-making demonstration, the putz, and insight into the life of the early settlers of Salem.
Each guest – both students and accompanying adults – receives a lovefeast candle and is served a Moravian cookie in the kitchen of the house, which was built more than 250 years ago. Visitors will hear about the early Moravians' daily activities, the earliest public water system in the United States, and how the young people in Salem were educated and the older boys learned a trade.
Reservations for school groups for the 2017 Candle Tea will open in August.
We look forward to seeing you at Candle Tea!
