A Winter Evening at Historic Sarke Plantation, circa 1790

“Imagine a cold winter evening from another era, with friends gathering in front of the fire,  story-telling and the laughter of all present.  

Outside the winter wind is howling, but here we dine  surrounded by glorious decorations of crystal, snowflake kissed flowers and candlelight.  

The night is warm indeed.” 



Sarke Plantation circa 1790 will be the location of the 2015 Winter Soiree.

Every year since 2006, the Nanticoke Historic Preservation has held a gala Fundraiser for the efforts to restore Handsell.  The Soiree is held each year during a different season and always at a historic place in Dorchester County.  The theme of the Soiree is tailored to the location or other seasonal themes.  All the proceeds from the last two Soirees, and all those in the immediate future will benefit the “Handsell Restoration Fund”.

Our Soiree’s in the past have included:

The 2013 End of Summer Soiree was held at private historic Hill’s Point Farm.
