The annual Christmas Tea at the old Dungeness Schoolhouse will be held from noon-4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2 and Sunday, Dec. 3, at 2781 Towne Road, east of the Dungeness River Bridge.
There will be a bake sale, displays, vendors, cookies with tea and holiday music organized by the original “Ladies of the Dungeness School” Community Club.
There is no admission into the event and baked items will be for sale. To donate baked items, drop them off at the school from 9-11 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 1, at the school.
Judy Stipe, executive director of Sequim Museum & Arts said this is an important year for the old schoolhouse because it celebrates 125 years.
The schoolhouse was built in 1892 and used continuously as a two-classroom school until it was closed in 1955 when the Dungeness District was consolidated into Sequim School District, Stipe said.
After the students were bused into Sequim, the schoolhouse was used as a community theater, basketball court, meeting hall and more before it was granted National Historic Site status from the U.S. Department of the Interior.
