Scouts and their moms enjoy a Victorian Tea

Girl Scout Tea & Tour

Enjoy a "Victorian tea" like Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low might have served in 1912 at the first Girl Scout meeting.

Tour the Falcon Rest Mansion and hear amusing stories about the Faulkner family who lived there 100 years ago.

Tours are tailored to age group of your troop, from Daisies to Seniors.

Girls have fun while learning that history isn't dry names and dates; it's about real people like them who lived in a different time.

Tea is served in the Victorian Tea Room, with menus ranging from a simple tea with cookies and lemonade to a formal afternoon tea of hot scones with cream and jam, tea sandwiches, fruit, assorted sweets, and hot spiced tea or lemonade.

Girl Scouts with the Victorian Gentleman


Boy Scouts love Falcon Rest, too ...

For Cub Scouts and older boys, history comes alive with stories of the five Faulkner children, a tour of their family's mansion, and old-fashioned games on the grounds. (Let us know if a few ghost stories would be appropriate for your group!)

Add a "Coney dog," fries, and pink lemonade like the Faulkner children might have enjoyed on a trip to an 1890s amusement park.
