Gatsby Garden Party at the Wentworth House

Nearly a century ago in the 1920s, the historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House in Rollinsford, NH hosted formal garden parties, concerts and teas, along with exhibits of colonial-era artifacts. The Roaring Twenties will return to the Wentworth House on Sunday, July 16 with a 1920s Gatsby Garden Party from 1 to 4 pm.

The public is invited to enjoy an afternoon of croquet on the lawn, other vintage indoor and outdoor pastimes, music, and exhibits of local artifacts from the 1920s. Guests may also tour the house and view “Fashionable Folks: What New Englanders Wore,” an exhibit of clothing from the 1830s to the 1920s. Light refreshments will be served but guests are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the garden. Jazz Age attire is encouraged but not required.

This event is hosted by the nonprofit Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH). Admission to the Gatsby Garden Party is $5 for the general public; ARCH members and children under 16 are free. For reservations or more information, call (603) 742-4747 or send an email to paulwentworthhouse@gmail.com.

Maintained by ARCH as an educational and cultural center for the community, the circa 1701 Wentworth House is located on Water Street in Rollinsford and hosts living history events, exhibits, and school and youth programs. For more information about this and other events at the Wentworth House, consult the ARCH website at paulwentworthhouse.org or on Facebook at The Colonel Paul Wentworth House.
