Maple Grove Tea Room

It was a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, so we took a drive out along the Red River, to a historic house, now home to a nice little tea room. The view of the river was outstanding, the desserts were “scrummy”, and the conversation was pleasant. 008-4-1 The home  was built in 1866 by Captain William Kennedy an explorer, entrepreneur and trader. Three rooms are a provincial historic museum.

I'm amazed that the house was built in 1866! When I think of the buildings in my Ontario community, I can't recall anything that NICE that is that old. I'm impressed. I'm glad it's being preserved as a museum.

I think I know where that tea house is! I have driven by it many times and wondered about it. I have a friend who would LOVE it. I shall have to take her there. Thanks for the idea!
