The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion had been originally built in 1868 to the tune of $2,000,000 by LeGrand Lockwood. The railroad baron lived in his extravagant property, however, for only four years (1864 ? 1868). In its early days, it had been one of the nation?s most important 2nd Empire Style country homes. In 1971, the mansion was recognized as a National Historic Landmark.

At the museum, the teatime tradition started by the Duchess of Bedford is lovingly continued every year. During the fundraising event, visitors are given an elegant and sumptuous treat of English tea snacks such as scones, tea sandwiches and cakes, lemon curd, tartlets, and Devonshire cream. Raffles and music as well other types of entertainment are also provided for the event.
