Hower House Victorian Mansion presents
Nuance & Whimsy: Vintage Valentine Exhibit
On Wednesday, February 11, Hower House will reopen with an expanded antique Valentine exhibit that focuses on the whimsical. Valentine cards were extremely popular between 1840 and 1900. During this month of romance we look to the past to consider how the Victorians commemorated their life, love and friendships in simple yet delightful ways. There will be whimsical, subtle, romantic and secretive vintage Valentine cards on view for the month.
NEW THIS YEAR: On view a rarely seen private collection on loan from local Hower descendants.
