This year's Silver Tea, an annual event of the San Juan Historical Society, will be historic on two levels.

First, the tea will be held in the King Farmhouse — the first event in the 1894 farmhouse since it was placed on a new foundation.

Second, the event features a quilt show in the resource center — an exhibit of quilts from the museum's collection, some dating to the late 1800s.

The Silver Tea and Quilt Show is May 2, 1-4 p.m. The event is open to the public. Jazz pianist David Bayley will perform.

"Donations are really appreciated," Museum Director Kevin Loftus said. "All proceeds help support the restoration of the museum's buildings, as well as museum programs."
