Van Horne Grand Tea Room readied for first anniversary celebration

The historic Van Horne building sits at the corner of West Main and North Lisbon Sts. in Carrollton exactly as it did when construction was completed in 1827.
It is an elegantly simple building that has witnessed countless changes to the landscape and makeup of Carrolton. It has been home to simple shops and elegant balls and has been both the center of local culture and at times has sat abandoned by all but the memories.
The grand architectural lady is undergoing a major revitalization that is centered around The Van Horne Grand Tea Room which celebrates its first anniversary Sept. 20 and 21 with special dining. There will be various door prizes, food sampling, and other special features. The events will have limited seating and reservations are required.
Since its opening a year ago, the Grand Tea Room has hosted businesspeople, teachers, moms and dads, grandparents, children of all ages, retirees, friends, family, and guests from all over the world. With its elegant Victorian décor and a menu featuring homemade quiches, paninis, signature salads, desserts, and teas the team room has become a destination bringing people into the local community.
“The vision that I had and the dreams for a special place for special people to gather, has been realized! I could have never imagined that the tea room would have attracted such wonderful, interesting and delightful folks!” said owner Randi Bake.

“I want to sincerely thank everyone who has contributed, visited and supported our efforts to bring a unique, relaxing and memorable experience to our community. It is a labor of love for every one of you!” said Bake.
