PENNSAUKEN, N.J. -- On the weekend before Mother's Day, the Griffith Morgan house presents a Mother's Day Tea. For a $3 donation, the event offers a spread of teas, tea sandwiches and pastries. In the dining room, Don and Cindy Hatin of Glen Falls, N.Y., (above, right) enjoy the food as well as the historic atmosphere. As a Pennsauken High School student in the 1970s, Don helped restore the historic structure.

The Griffith Morgan cooking area is dominated by a huge working hearth. For Mother's Day Tea, the kitchen becomes a reception area. Local artist Kyle Hammond, above right, greets visitors at the finger foods table.

Architect Jack Oliver, above right, is a perennial favorite at the site. The last of the five original members of the 1970s Griffith Morgan Committee, he explains how the dilapidated and fire-gutted structure was brought back to life by volunteers.

The Griffith Morgan House is open to the public for a number of special events during the year but does not have scheduled weekly hours. The facility accommodates school and other groups by appointment. For additional information, contact:
