Young girls, many dressed in Victorian-style clothing, hats and gloves, gathered at the Edmond Historical Society and Museum to learn the manners of an afternoon tea.

The 48 girls, ages 7 to 12, learned the importance of tea time in the 1800s from living history performers Christy Adel and Carol Anderson.

Girls enjoyed polite conversation, authentic tea and food, live chamber music and fresh flowers.

This was the first tea the historical society has hosted for young girls. Society officials said they may plan additional teas in the future.
