Love is in the air, and the Baytown Historical Preservation Association is celebrating by making handmade Victorian Valentines at its upcoming Hands-on History program.
Bring the children and let them create their own Valentine’s Day cards similar to what may have been exchanged during the Victorian era while enjoying light refreshments.
This free festive event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 8, from 2 to 4 p.m., in the barn at the Republic of Texas Plaza Park, 5117 N. Main St. in Baytown.
The BHPA will provide all the craft supplies including hearts, doilies, ribbons, and lace — you supply the love!
Members of the Goose Creek Memorial High School National Art Honor Society will be on hand to assist the children in creating and decorating their special cards for a family member or friend.
The 1894 one-room Wooster School and 1910 Brown-McKay Farmhouse will also be open for those who wish to take a peek into the past.
