Dine with family or friends, 19th-century style!

Meet engaging characters from the past, and enjoy an elegant four-course meal fit to appear at the table of President Thomas Jefferson and company. Learn about 19th-century dining customs, and explore Hosmer’s Inn upstairs and down. Between the final two courses of your meal, take in the sights and smells of the fall around the Historic Village as you enjoy a private, lantern-lit tour with one of our hostesses. You may find it hard to journey back to the 21st century! 

Each evening’s exclusive dining experience can accommodate up to a maximum of 15 people.

An experience unlike any other
