Dining Table

I have had the honour of serving some of the most famous visitors to Government House, as well as many of the Lieutenant Governors’ family gatherings and even some public celebrations. I have served multiple courses of delicious dishes, many of which have been made using  ingredients that have come entirely from the grounds of Government House. At my smallest, I am only five and a half feet. But when all of the
leaves are inserted, I extend to a full 22 feet! Oh, it feels good to stretch out!

I was taken to the Legislative Building and used in the Legislative Library from 1945-1984 where I served as more of a boardroom table than a dining table. I was then moved into storage for a short time before returning to the dining room at Government House in 1985. I am one of the only artifacts still used today, as special guests still dine here at the invitation of the Lieutenant Governor or the Premier. Some things never change: the best conversations and gatherings continue to happen around the dining room table and I take that job very seriously.
