Celebrate Valentine's Day the old-fashioned way by enjoying classic 19th-century poetry recited in the elegant drawing room of the James J. Hill House.

Actors Craig Johnson, Laura Salveson, and Ann Daly will perform, dressed in1890s evening wear, a wide range of humorous and stirring poems by Dickinson, Poe, Longfellow, Browning, and more. The poems will deal with love, romance, temperance, sports, war, and even James J. Hill.

Audience members are invited to bring a short Victorian poem to read aloud. Light refreshments and tours of the Hill House will follow the program.
