Celebrate the re-opening of Old York’s Perkins House Museum with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and live jazz music, along the banks of the scenic York River. Take a first look at the newly-restored 1926 kitchen, and enjoy delicious nibbles prepared by Wabi Café, along with cocktails by Wiggly Bridge Distillery (including Elizabeth Perkins’ favorite cocktail), and wine provided by Vineyard Brands.
The Perkins House Museum is located at 394 Southside Road in York. Parking is available at the York Middle School (30 Organug Road), with a trolley to the Perkins House generously provided by Williams Realty Partners.
Proceeds from this event provide essential support for the many things Old York cares for and cares about—16 buildings, 20 properties, 5 full-time and 25 part-time employees, more than 20,000 artifacts, 50,000 archival objects in the library—and helps us serve thousands of people annually through tours, educational programs, exhibitions, and special events.
