Tea Room Postcard #26 -- The Green Shutters Tea Room (Whitewater, Wisconsin)

There's something about a grand old home that is just so appealing, and I'll bet this house was once a real draw to those visiting the Green Shutters Tea Room in Whitewater, Wisconsin.

The eBay seller says the postcard was mailed in 1946, and I'll just have to take their word for it because I'm only certain of the 19 and maybe part of a 6. It reads, "Dear Maude: Here we are now having lunch and entering Minnesota for our destination. The weather has been excellent and the trip beautiful. Wisconsin is like Vermont. Love, Nora." Like Vermont? Hmm. I'll have to ask some family members in Wisconsin what they think about that! I guessed, correctly, that the home is still standing today, but I was not correct in assuming it is now a residence. What's the Green Shutters Tea Room doing today? Go here to find out!


  1. Okay, I would not have guessed its new purpose! Glad the impressive building is still in service!

  2. I just toured Oatlands in Virginia with Mary Jane. Beautiful, esp the terraces garden. They have tea there sometimes too! Unfortunately, my trip didn't coincide. Old homes and gardens are so interesting!

  3. It's a shame it isn't still a tearoom but I'm glad it is still being used!

  4. This house has such a grand look to it - so pretty! This home would fit right in on a Southern Homes Tour.
    So glad it's still in use, even though not as a tea room.
    Have a great weekend, Joanbie
