About This Event

We are excited to announce our Valentine’s Day Tour! Come hear stories of love, courtship, romance, and marriage from both the Hill family and their domestic employees. Explore the rich world of love and romance in the Gilded Age, from calling cards to “basket socials,” lavish Valentine’s Day balls, early personal ads, and the rise of a newfangled practice called “dating.”

Tours last 60 minutes and will be offered in place of the regular house tour February 8-18, except during Nooks and Crannies Tours (Feb. 11 and 18 at 3:30 pm). Admission includes self-guided access to the first floor of the mansion along with a Valentine’s-themed guided tour of the entire house.

Mark your calendars and make it a date!
