Do you play croquet? Even if not, you’re in good company!

The Crawford County Historical Society welcomes you to:

The Second Annual Eleanor Davies Croquet Classic and Garden Party presented by Allegheny College
Sunday, July 28th
Registration: 12 pm
Tournament Throughout the Day
Final “Spectator Game” and Garden Party: 4:00 pm-6:30 pm

Find your Downton Abbey or summer white attire, get a fantastic hat or grow out that amazing mustache, and gather your team of 3 to enjoy a friendly tournament on the lawns of the Baldwin-Reynolds House as well as most of the mansions on Terrace St!

Any skill level is welcome and no prior experience necessary!

Our schedule for the day will include:

Three games of croquet
An authentic “Downton Abbey/British” Luncheon
“Tea” (Beer) throughout the day sponsored by Voodoo Brewery
Prizes for the top team as well as those with the best outfits, best facial hair, best hat (for the ladies), and more!
A fantastic garden party under canopy tents on the museum lawn to watch the final tournament game as well as enjoy great company, live music, a full dinner sponsored by Venango Valley Inn, and wonderful libations

Those who do not wish to play croquet are still welcome to purchase “Spectator Tickets” which allow them to arrive starting at 1 pm to watch the games. Spectator Tickets include admission to the Garden Party and final spectator game as well.

***Please note: In case of inclement weather, we will still attempt to delay the start of the tournament for up to one hour. Sponsorship of the event is a tax-deductible donation to the museum and just like a golf outing, no refund will be issued if weather causes the match to be canceled. The Garden Party will still occur inside the Baldwin-Reynolds House Museum in cases of inclement weather starting at 4:00 pm.
