Notes: Thanks to Jan Whitaker for putting together this history of the White Rabbit Tea Room on her Restauranting Through History website that indicates the White Rabbit Tea Room was opened in 1931 on Cape Cod, Mass. by Nate Nickerson and co-owner Mildred Ring before moving to Buzzards Bay and its "long-term home." It was a seasonal venue, "open only from April through November." By 1966, Whitaker writes, "the White Rabbit had evidently abandoned the tea room theme. It then featured liquor and steaks." It is not known the year the tea room closed.
According to a poster on The Wareham Historical Society Facebook page, the tea room is now Charlie's Place: ""The White Rabbit Tea Room was knocked down (don't remember the year) and was replaced with a gas station which is there now. Charlie's Place is the old White Rabbit Tea Room's cocktail lounge which was separate from the restaurant, as the White Rabbit, up until the 60's, did not serve liquor."
