Tea House addition to benefit museum and community events

The new events support addition to the Tea House at the Deltaville Maritime Museum’s Waterfront Park was completed this past week. The structure will support the Groovin’ in the Park concert series, the Friday’s at 5 Socials, the Museums Festivals and Markets as well as increase service options for weddings, reunions and community events. Looking at the photo the boards attached to the posts to the right of the addition are the bones of the shape of the serving bar counter that is in the process of being built. It is designed for both food and beverage service. Cooking equipment would be moved as needed along the rear (left). Insert in the bottom left of picture shows the addition from the front.

Hi everyone, I am pretty over the top this year not only about our really, really great Groovin’ season schedule, but also about all the things we at Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park are doing to improve our Waterfront Park area for this upcoming season. We are improving the waterfront not only to make our Groovin’, Friday Socials and other events better but also to add options for the other groups that use our park. 

All you folks who come out to Groovin’ will see we will make not only a slight enlargement of our stage for more performance room, but also have just finished the “more than slight” addition to our Tea House shown in the above photo. Although you won’t see it from the outside, we are also upgrading the “Stage Door,” finishing the inside with wall finish, trim, and flooring so it can continue to be used as a Waterfront Stage support facility but also as a dressing room for stage productions, weddings and other community functions such as the Leukemia Cup.

We also are upgrading our outdoor lighting for the Waterfront Park.

As we finish these other projects I will keep you informed through this paper.
