In Jane Austen’s day


The docents at the Moland House gathered in their garden to welcome guest speaker Elizabeth Steele at their annual Spring Tea Fundraiser on April 24. Steele discussed Jane Austen and provided insight into the situation of ladies in the early 1800s. She shared background stories that were the bases of Austen’s novels. After Steele’s presentation, guests enjoyed tea catered by Our Towne Catering and prepared by William Keucher.
