Wenham Tea House
4 Monument Street • Wenham, MA 01984
Wenham, founded by English settlers in 1635, is approximately an hour north of Boston. Fast-forward a few centuries to 1912, when a small group of spirited women from the Wenham Village Improvement Society purchased Mr. Henry Hobb’s harness shop as a home for their new teahouse and an exchange for selling various and sundry items. The Wenham Tea House and Exchange (now know as Wenham Tea House featuring Fresh Food Catering) was established and continues as one of the United States’ oldest tearooms, still raising funds for the Wenham Village Improvement Society. The food and service at the Wenham Tea House, a historical landmark, are reminiscent of the dining experience of a century ago. A combination of traditional tea sandwiches, scones, and other homemade sweets fills the menu, along with a balanced selection of teas. Afternoon tea is served by reservation only from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Fridays, and 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturdays.
