Children are invited to create Valentine’s Day cards similar to what may have been exchanged during the Victorian era Feb. 8 from 2 to 4 p.m., in the barn at the Republic of Texas Plaza Park, 5117 N. Main St. in Baytown. In left row, from front to back, are Zander Aguilar, Elie Alle, and Owen Allen and in the right row are  Angela Sims (school marm), Kara Allen, Mya Hans and Zareck Aguilar.

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.

For additional information, please call 281-421-2099 or email info@baytownhistory.org. To learn more about the BHPA and its activities, visit their website at www.baytownhistory.org.
