The Magic of Mother’s Day

Treat mum to a slice of history and enjoy a special display of memorabilia from three generations of remarkable Porter women. After, visit the market stall and check out our free children’s activity.

Miss Porter’s House reflects three generations of remarkable women who were early European settlers, businesspeople, employees and active community members, as well as wives and mothers. Join the Miss Porter’s House volunteers and celebrate this special day and the Porter women with a display of family photographs, tea pots, tea sets and other Mother’s Day memorabilia and some fun children’s activities at Miss Porter’s House.

Miss Porter’s House museum is a women’s house containing the clothes, photographs, craft work and household effects of Florence Porter and her daughters Ella and Hazel. Their husband and father, Herbert Porter, died during the 1919 influenza epidemic leaving his young family to live in the family home until it was bequeathed to the National Trust on the death of Hazel in 1997.

Visit Miss Porter’s House and discover what being a mother meant for three generations of remarkable women.

Free children’s activity also available on the day.
