We consider the incurable romanticism of the Victorian era in February with our month-long Victorian Flirtation exhibit, open February 5 through 28. Our vintage valentine collection is on display with all its charming imagery and messages, many of them with hidden meanings or messages intended only for that special someone. These often ephemeral items intrigue and engage the viewer through vibrant color, whimsical, affectionate, and sometimes humorous messages.Exhibit includes fun and interesting flirtatious objects as well as our vintage Valentine collection from FEBRUARY 5 through FEBRUARY 28, 2014.
Join us for the SWEET SATURDAYS of FEBRUARY (Feb. 8, 15, 22) when guests will be served warm gingerbread and hot tea in the beautiful dining
room at the conclusion of their paid tour (served 12:30 until closing). After enjoying this complimentary sweet treat our guests may visit the Cellar Door Store to shop.
