Maisie Brews a Business- 1920 Tea Rooms

Tea rooms were enormously popular in the first half of the 20th century and are a fascinating aspect of women’s history. Most were owned or managed by women and in the 1920s especially, tea rooms became the fashionable places for women to meet friends in small towns, big cities and suburbs. Several flourished in Maplewood and South Orange including the well-known Washington Inn. Historic interpreter Maureen OConnor Leach will take on the voice of a 1925 matron who is planning to open a Tea Room and will provide the audience with a view into the challenges faced by women who were stepping out of the home and into the business world.
