"Valentine's Sleigh" living history (NJ)

  • Howell Living History Farm 70 Woodens Lane Lambertville, NJ, 08530 United States (map)

Celebrate the late 1800s’ warm hearts and cozy farmhouse at Howell Living History Farm’s “Valentine’s Sleigh” event, combining the festivities of Valentines celebrations with the fun of winter excitement.

Silhouettes By Hand ‘s Lauren Muney will be dressed for ca.1900, set up in the sitting room of the farmhouse, demonstrating silhouettes as they would have been cut freehand, in the traditional manner. Silhouettes would have been scattered through 1900 houses of previous generations, but with photography available at that era, silhouettes would only have been continued as novelty or nostalgia.

In the parlor will be music from the jug band, the smells of winter lunch being prepared, and horse-drawn rides will be available. Many more activities will be happening - visit the website for details
