Vintage Valentines at the Miller-Cory House Museum
Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Love is in the air as the Miller-Cory House Museum presents “Vintage Valentines” on February 11, 2:00 to 4:00. The writing of romantic notes and letters for St. Valentine’s Day was very popular in colonial America. By the mid-1800s, the first mass-produced Valentine’s Day cards were sold, and an industry was born. The program features a display of vintage valentines, some dating to the 1800s, a children’s Valentine’s Day craft and light refreshments. The program also includes a tribute to Ms. Jean Groszmann, whose fascinating collections, including valentines, provided the basis for numerous programs at the museum. Admission is $4.00 for ages 13 and older, $3.00 for ages 3 to 12 and free under age 3.
The Miller-Cory House Museum is a fully furnished farmhouse built in 1740 and listed on both the State and National Registers of Historic Places and as a site on the New Jersey Women’s Heritage Trail. It is available for school, scout, or other group tours on weekdays during the morning or after school. Other programs include a showcase of 18th century skills during which volunteers demonstrate colonial-era crafts and discuss 18th century life in New Jersey for interested groups, including on-site at local schools.
