There is nothing better than a Fortune Teller’s Tea in a haunted house. This Saturday, the Warren County Historical Society is hosting a tea at the Glendower Historic Mansion in Lebanon from noon to 5 p.m.
“We’re very pleased that Bridget Hackman and Irina Hall area returning this year to provide Tarot and tea leaf readings,” Glendower Volunteer manager, Vicki Patterson said. “Irina received her training in tea leaf reading from a college class she took at the university she attended in Russia. Bridget lives in Cincinnati and is well known as a tarot card reader around Southwest Ohio. Patti Lightflower will also be joining us this year. She is an expert in Palmistry and hand analysis.”
Glendower Mansion was built in 1845 by the decedents of Lebanon’s most famous pioneers, John Milton and Mary Rigdon Williams. Mary was the granddaughter of Francis and Mary Craig Dunlavy. The house was originally named after Owen Glendower, the last Welch Prince of Wales. After the Civil War, it was the home of General Durbin Ward and his wife Elizabeth Probasco Ward. In the early 1900’s Ladoga Scoville Owens, the Grand Dame of Lebanon, called the mansion home, and is thought to still be lingering among the halls. It’s located on a beautiful, spacious, property in the area where only the wealthy people could afford.
Cost: $30 per person and includes a full tea buffet, tour of Glendower and your choice of either a palm or tea leaf reading. Tarot card readings are also available for an additional charge.
Glendower Mansion is located at 105 Cincinnati Ave., Lebanon, OH.
