The Seaside Museum and History Center offers a series of events at the circa 1893 Butterfield Cottage for the winter holidays and the enjoyment of Gingerbread Tea.
Trees, wreaths and pine garlands decorate every room of Seaside’s authentic Victorian cottage.
Homemade gingerbread cake, baked by museum “grandmothers,” is served with fresh whipped cream along with a choice of hot tea, cocoa or hot spiced cider. Children can have a homemade old fashioned gingerbread men cookie.
The Seaside Strummers will play their ukuleles on Nov. 24; Shirley Yates will be singing and playing keyboard on Dec. 15.
Tickets for the annual holiday raffle are available at each tea or at the museum for $1 each or 6 for $5. Winning tickets will be pulled at 4 p.m. on Dec. 15. The museum is located at 570 Necanicum Drive, Seaside and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. More information can be found at www.seasideoregonuseum.com
