Events presented at Tallac site
Figures from the past and celebrities will help present two special events at the Tallac Historic Site this summer.
Mrs. Mable Pacheco Tevis invites everyone to tea on the front porch of her grand summer residence known as the Pope Estate at 2 p.m. July 5, 12, 19 and 26. The cost is $10 per person and prepaid reservations are required. The tea is recommended for people 15 years and up.
The Tevises were the second family to live in this home and were responsible for building most of the structures and the beautiful arboretum. Everyone will have an opportunity to share the quiet, grace and casual elegance of an afternoon tea Tallac-style. It is a complete interpretive experience with china teacups and biscuits among the exotic plants of Mrs. Tevis’ garden.
The second event, called Vintage Vatican, provides an opportunity to join the Pope family for a cocktail hour tour of their summer home. Guests can get in the mood by wearing their vintage duds and taking on a 1920s persona. They will tour the Pope House with such celebrities as Charlie Chaplin, Tom Mix or Mary Pickford and step back in time to enjoy a glass of champagne and hors d’oeuvres on the porch, while soaking in a beautiful lake view.
The Vintage Vatican tour, for people 21 years of age and older, is offered at 4 p.m. July 13. The cost is $15 per person and prepaid advance registrations are recommended.
For information on these events and others at the Tahoe Tallac Site call (530) 541-5227 or visit the Baldwin Museum at the site.
