From the website:

"The original owner of Pleasant Home, John Farson, was known for entertaining. In June of 1907, Mr. Farson hosted a lavish outdoor affair that was the talk of the town for weeks after the event. The grounds of Pleasant Home were transformed into a magical garden, filled with peonies, paper lanterns, electric lights and perfume-filled fountains. This was a summer fete that would not be forgotten...

The Pleasant Home Foundation wishes to continue the Farson Family's tradition with a June Revel of our own - a gala event with a nostalgic theme reminiscent of another era. The event will include theatrical entertainment, strolling musicians, delicious food, and a silent auction titled "Great Estates" featuring unique experiences in notable private homes.

Income generated from the 2014 June Revel will help fund museum projects such as restoring the historic roof, rebuilding the second floor piazza, and installing climate control in the public areas of the home."
