Hearthside Suppers

Ever wonder what dinner was like in the nineteenth century before modern conveniences like the microwave, the refrigerator, or even an oven as we know it today? Now is your chance to experience an authentic nineteenth century supper. Conner Prairie Living History Museum offers Hearthside Suppers now through March 21, 2010, a perfect Indianapolis education opportunity for your Indianapolis kids. Reservations are required for this one of a kind experience offered Friday through Sunday only from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Discover Indianapolis history at Conner Prairie Living History Museum. Before the I-465 loop, before Meridian Street was paved and lined with mansions, a little settlement north of the Indianapolis metro area was founded by William Conner. Today that place is preserved as a monument to the way things used to be. Throughout the year Conner Prairie, a famed Indianapolis museum, offers a variety of activities that help kids and their parents engage in history deeper than by just reading a text book.

This Winter, Hearthside Suppers at Conner Prairie are a chance for families to come together over a nineteenth century dinner table. In the authentic and intimate setting of central Indiana’s first brick home, Hearthside Suppers offer a glimpse into the past. Learn the multi-step process of preparing dinner before modern conveniences. Help with preparations by the hearth as you sip on hot cider. A  delicious multi-course meal is recreated from nineteenth century recipes as costumed host takes you on a journey through Indiana’s past. Tour the 1823 Conner House, enjoy parlor entertainment, and learn about life in the nineteenth century.

The authentic nineteenth century menu includes traditional Winter foods from the era. This year the Hearthside Supper consists of popcorn, pounded cheese and crackers, Queen soup (creamed chicken soup), pork roast with winter vegetables, chicken fricasse, dilled picked green beans, skillet cranberries, apple sauce, hearth bread with fresh butter and jam, bread and butter pudding with cherries and coffee and tea. A better meal could not be found at Indianapolis restaurants. Hearthside Suppers are a fun activity for the entire family or a large group. The Conner House can accommodate up to twelve guests at a time. Make your Hearthside Supper an exclusive experience and treat for everyone. Groups of twelve even pre-order wine to make the evening a more festive occasion.

Tickets for this Indianapolis event are $55.00 per person, $50.00 for members of the Conner Prairie Living History Museum. For more information call 317.776.6006 or visit Conner Prairie’s official website. This Indianapolis attraction is a favorite among Indianapolis kids.
