This morning the Wagon Shed was transformed into a beautiful tea room and we welcomed forty ladies from Christ United Methodist Church. The ladies enjoyed tomato bisque soup, tea sandwiches, quiches, chicken salad, scones, and sweet treats from Dollie's Tea Room.

After the tea the group went on a tour of the Museum House decorated for Christmas as snowflakes fell from the sky. Thank you, ladies, for taking part in a festive day at Renfrew!

Emma Nicodemus loved to host private dinner parties and gather friends at her home. Saturday evening, we welcomed four couples who dined with us after winning the Christmas meal during the live auction at Oktoberfest. Their five-course meal, paired with wine, was prepared by Chef Ron Berger and assisted by David Hykes.

As Christmas music played softly in the background the couples received a private tour of the house and enjoyed a night of delicious food, laughter and making memories.

Appetizers and dinner consisted of cheese and crackers, New England Clam Chowder, assorted breads, a garden salad with vinaigrette dressing and cheese, Lobster Thermador, herb roasted Cornish game hen, pork tenderloin medallions, wild rice, seasonal vegetables. The meal concluded with a dessert sampling of mini cheese cake, pumpkin custard, chocolate truffles, and berry crumble.

We'd like to thank Bill & Karen Adams, John & Deb Beck, Jeff & Sheryl Gehr, and Denny & Kim Shockey for bidding on the meal and for your support of Renfrew. Thank you to our volunteers who cooked and served the meals and graciously donated their time to ensure the evening was a memorable one for our guests.

Renfrew would like to thank Noel Kline for sharing these photos with us from Christmas on the Farm. Noel was able to capture so many aspects of the event and we appreciate his photographic talent.

There is still time to book your private group tour of the house. Gather your group of 10 or more family/friends and call the office to schedule, we'd be glad to share the beauty of the Museum House and Summer Kitchen with your group.

About Renfrew

Open dawn to dusk year-round and free of charge, Renfrew welcomes you to explore the historic grounds and miles of nature trails.

Renfrew Museum is a restored farmstead with many outbuildings to see and activities to participate in. Your tour begins at our Visitors Center with a DVD presentation, and an explanation of the nation’s leading collection of John Bell and Bell family pottery. Paid admission takes you on a guided tour of the 1812 Renfrew Museum where you will see the kitchen, dining room, parlors and bedrooms with period furnishings throughout.

Now, two centuries after Daniel Royer’s day, much of the landscape is unchanged. As an historical institution, Renfrew offers its visitors an intimate view of the past. Visit us in Waynesboro, and discover how the agriculture, industry and domestic life of over 200 years ago worked together to make a prosperous Pennsylvania German farmstead.

A special feature of the Renfrew Museum is the only permanent public display of artifacts from the Snow Hill Cloister, a 19th century monastical society located in nearby Quincy, Pennsylvania.

The Royer-Nicodemus House and Farm are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Located in the Visitor Center is a quaint gift shop with an interesting array of items, many from local artisans. Gift shop hours during season are the same as museum hours. Off-season hours are Monday through Friday 11:00am until 4:00pm.
