LINCOLN – Friends of Hearthside will host an old fashioned ice cream social and garden party on Sunday, July 25, from noon to 3 p.m. at Hearthside House Museum, 677 Great Road.

The event will include ice cream sundaes, customized with a choice of toppings, to enjoy while listening to ragtime music in the background. A barbershop quartet will stroll the grounds and serenade with old time tunes. For those who don’t want to sit back and be entertained, there will be lawn games such as croquet, ring toss, bean bag, and horseshoes. On exhibit will be a turn-of-the-century phonograph along with original recordings. And as a throwback to carnival days, there will be fortune telling by a tarot card reader.

The museum’s first floor will also be open for those who may have never been inside before or for anyone wishing to see the latest discovery of a hidden door found during restoration work. The gift shop will also be open.

The event will take place under a tent, rain or shine. Advanced tickets only are available at www.hearthsidehouse.org. The cost is $16 per person; $8 for youth ages 9 and under.

All proceeds support the nonprofit volunteer organization’s efforts to preserve, protect, and interpret the history of the 1810 Hearthside House and the Great Road Heritage Campus at Chase Farm Park.
