Tea and History at Ellis Barn in Springfield Oaks June 24

Springfield Twp, MI – Steep yourself in history during Oakland County Park and Recreation’s Time for Tea program from 1-3 p.m. June 24.

Oakland County Parks and Recreation Historian Carol Egbo will discuss the history of tea while participants enjoy an assortment of teas, light appetizers and desserts.

The program will be held in the historic 1884 Ellis Barn, a 14,000-square-foot structure that features a true gambrel roof. It was the only Michigan barn referenced in the nationally renowned book, The American Barn. Originally located on Dixie Highway in Clarkston, the barn was relocated to Springfield Oaks County Park in 2005.

“There is so much history to share about our Oakland County Parks,” Recreation Program Supervisor Sandy Dorey said. “Time for Tea is part of a historical series that takes a look back at the way life used to be so we can preserve these memories for future generations.”

Cost for Time for Tea is $20. Pre-registration and payment must be made by June 15. The registration form is available at OaklandCountyParks.com.
