Be Ours: Worcester's Role in the American Valentine Industry

When: Tue., Feb. 7, 7-8 p.m.

The Executive Director of the Worcester Historical Museum in Massachusetts will educate and entertain during this presentation to benefit the Cobblestone Museum, a 501c3 organization. Learn how for nearly a century, Worcester was at the heart of the American valentine-making industry, and how to identify Worcester-originals in your collection. Esther Howland making hand-assembled creations in the early 1850s to mass-produced cards of the early 20th century makes Worcester's story one of innovation, creativity and ever-expanding markets. Three generations of businesses encouraged someone to "Be Mine."
