The Cottage Kitchen at the Charles S. Cock House Museum, located at 400 W. Hopkins Street, will be serving lunch from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Friday, June 1…
This week’s luncheon will be hosted by San Marcos Mermaid Society and the food will be prepared by Root Cellar Catering.
Friday’s menu will consist of Tuscan Chicken Pasta, Cellar House Green Salad, Rosemary Focaccia, with Strawberry Rhubarb Fruit Cobbler with Vanilla Whipped Cream for dessert and a drink (tea, coffee or water) and all for only $8 (only cash or checks accepted.)!
All proceeds from the lunch will benefit the Heritage Association of San Marcos, an organization that supports the preservation of historic buildings and celebrates the culture and traditions that beautify and enrich the San Marcos community.
According to their website, the vision of the San Marcos Mermaid Society is to be “a vibrant and prosperous community united by the empowering symbol of the Mermaid; celebrating our arts, culture and heritage, progressing towards our future well-being, and fostering river guardianship.”
The Root Cellar Cafe sits on the bottom floor of the historic Donaldson Building and opened their doors February 2005. According to their website they have been a “continuing part of the rich history of this sacred place, now known as San Marcos, Texas.”
Cottage Kitchen began more than 40 years ago inside the Charles S. Cock home, a historic stone house that is now listed in the National Register. Charles S. Cock was a pioneer and a former mayor of San Marcos.
The Heritage Association of San Marcos is a non-profit organization chartered in 1975 to support the preservation of buildings, historical sites and archives as well as to perpetuate traditions that beautify and enrich the community life of this city.
The Association grew out of the San Marcos Bicentennial Commission, which was formed in 1972 to plan and coordinate the city’s celebration of the nation’s Bicentennial in 1976.
Since its founding, the Heritage Association has been responsible for many beloved community traditions, including the traditional Friday luncheons at the Cottage Kitchen.
