The Amherst Rose and Parlour Gift Shop in Massillon, OH

On Saturday we visited the Amherst Rose in Massillon, Ohio for a very special tea event. But, first, I want to show you around Mary Jane Corwin's fabulous tea room.  Please enjoy the tour!
A special "welcome" at the front entrance (photos above and below).
Photos of the very well-stocked gift shop are below. 
Wont you join us for afternoon tea?
The piano "bar" is above. 
The main dining room is below.

These are photos of Mary Jane enjoying tea during travels. 
I met Mary Jane on the 2007 Tea in London Tour when she was working to refurbish this beautiful home in Massillon, Ohio to open a tea room.  It was a very long process with various contractors and health department regulations and inspections. 
I am so happy I visited the Amherst Rose, Mary Jane's tea room dream come true. 
This is one of the best tea rooms I have visited in all my tea travels. 
Please visit the Amherst Rose website here to see more.

I will share photos and details about a very, very special afternoon tea in my next post.....
 
NOTE:
This tea room closed in 2012
