In honor of Valentines Day we thought we’d share some photos from our Victorian Valentine’s Day event. Last Saturday, February 8th, Latah County Historical Society hosted an open house at the McConnell Mansion. To celebrate the event we opened the doors and invited the public to come enjoy cookies, crafts, and good times with us. The Appaloosa Lace Maker’s Guild was at the event showing off their skills. There was music at the event by the talented Juliana Witt on piano and Rachel Kone on violin. Despite less-than-ideal weather conditions, we had many visitors, young and old.
The event was catered by our very own volunteers and members. We would like to thank everyone who brought cookies for the enjoyment of our guests.
A very big thank you also should go out to the Latah County Historical Society Events Committee who organized the celebration.
Without further adieu here are some pictures from our event:
We would like to thank everybody who joined us at the Mansion as well as those who volunteered to help at during the event. Thank you all for helping make this years Victorian Valentine’s Day event a success. Lastly, a Latah County Historical Society blog post wouldn’t be complete without recognizing some items from our collection. Enjoy and we hope you have a happy Valentine’s Day!
