Hearthside Suppers

Help prepare a delicious meal the 19th-century way in an authentic 1836 kitchen, and then enjoy your meal in the historic William Conner House with family and friends.

There are limited tickets available. Please call Guest Services at 317-776-6000 for more information.

Our Hearthside Suppers invite guests to take part in an entertaining evening with our costumed interpreters. Hosted in the historic 1823 William Conner House, you’ll arrive just in time for a light appetizer, then lend a hand with the final preparations of the meal.

You might churn butter, grind coffee, prepare the vegetables, or more. Through work, conversation, and play, you’ll learn about 19th-century food and cooking techniques. Then, after receiving instruction in proper etiquette, settle in and enjoy a delicious supper by candlelight, followed by 19th-century parlor games and dessert.
