Victorine’s Valentine’s Day
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your loved ones at Hagley during Victorine’s Valentine’s Day, a sweet family event that has something for everyone to enjoy.
Victorine’s Valentine’s Day honors the life and legacy of Victorine du Pont Bauduy, daughter of E.I. du Pont. Victorine taught and served as superintendent at the Brandywine Manufacturers’ Sunday School.
Make a Valentine’s Day card using the scrap method popular in the Victorian era, wrap a candy bar with your own design to give as a gift to that special someone, and get creative at the hot cocoa bar with whipped cream, chocolate chips, and other tasty treats.
Meet Victorine and learn some fun facts about her life. Try your hand using a quill pen to write valentine verses. Looking for a modern day challenge? Test your balancing skills by building a heart-shaped structure using plastic cups!
Activities are included in regular admission and free for Hagley members.
