Program Description

Event Details

Guest presenter Rollin Phipps will guide you on a 150 year journey through the history of the British monarchy including notables Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and the disastrous reign of King Edward VIII. Rollin will discuss the controversial name change to House of Windsor in the early 1900s and the role of aristocratic families like the fictional Crawleys of Downton Abbey. The modern age has brought many changes to these families and their elegant homes, pushing some to the brink of financial ruin. Photos, artifacts, and other items will be on display and British cookies and tea will be served. While this program is geared towards adults, older children are welcome to attend. Anyone under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is not required.
