The Newtonville Hall is making it’s second appearance on Doors Open Clarington. For those of you that missed the opportunity to see it in 2011, Saturday will be the perfect time!
The Newtonville Hall was built in 1854 and was originally known as the Royal Templars Lodge. The Royal Templars was one of many temperance societies popular at the time. The monthly meetings of this social organization included plays, songs, readings and music. The building was restored in 1979 as the local community hall. Since then, the building has been available for rental for such events as meetings, parties, weddings and luncheons.
On Saturday, the hall will feature displays about the history of Newtonville, along with a fundraiser BBQ lunch.
The menu for the BBQ is the following:
- Hamburger or Sausage on a Bun – $5.00
- Hot Dog – $3.00
- Ice Cream Bar – $2.00
- Muffin – $1.00
- Pop – $1.00
- Bottled Water – $1.00
- Coffee – $1.00
- Tea will also be available from Tea Granny’s
The Tea Granny’s and Friends are bringing their Victorian Tea Experience to Newtonville Hall. The Tea Salon was started in 1999 and was inspired by the owner’s personal interest in collecting turn-of-the-century vintage clothing and jewelry at a young age.
Surrounded by Newtonville’s history on the walls and Victorian Tea in your cup, you will feel like you are back in the 1890’s.
