Instead of buying your Valentine’s Day cards this year, come to the Connecticut Historical Society to create old-fashioned, hand-made Valentines! Get inspired by Valentines from long ago, then use your creativity to make Valentine cards to give to your friends and family. This program is great for all ages!
This program is FREE and open to the public as part of Free First Saturday which offers admission to the museum galleries all day at no charge. (Please note that free admission does not include the Waterman Research Center.) For more information, call (860) 236-5621 x222 or email [email protected]. Thanks to Berkshire Bank for support of this program.
A private, nonprofit, educational organization established in 1825, the Connecticut Historical Society is the state’s official historical society and one of the oldest in the nation. Located at One Elizabeth Street in Hartford, the CHS houses a museum, library, and the Edgar F. Waterman Research Center that are open to the public and funded by private contributions. The CHS’s collection includes more than 4 million manuscripts, graphics, books, artifacts, and other historical materials accessible at our campus and on loan at other organizations.
The CHS collection, programs and exhibits help Connecticut residents connect with each other, have conversations that shape our communities, and make informed decisions based on our past and present.
