Fall Tarbell Teas Return To Titusville

Oil City, PA— Step back in time for a multi-course Victorian tea and rub elbows with characters from the oil boom portrayed by student re-enactors at Titusville’s Tarbell House Friday, September 23 from 4-6 p.m.

Additional Tarbell Teas will be held Saturday, October 15 from 1-3 p.m., Saturday, November 19 from 1-3 p.m., and Friday, December 9 from 4-6 p.m.

Guests at Fall Tarbell Teas will also be treated to the Political Cartoons of the Oil Region Exhibit, a collection of impressive, humorous, and often scathing, artwork about the petroleum industry and its big names such as Tarbell and Rockefeller published in the popular press during the oil boom. Access to the exhibit is included in the cost of the Tarbell Tea ticket.

Cost is $20/person and pre-registration is required. Call 814.677.3152 or e-mail Grace at gstclair@oilregion.org

The Tarbell House was the teenage home of journalism pioneer Ida Tarbell. The home is owned and operated as a house museum and event venue by the Oil Region Alliance, managing entity of the Oil Region National Heritage Area.
