Looking for a Valentine? Maybe the Victorians can help! Join us for our next History Talks! Lecture as Sandee Wilhoit, GQHF Historian, and Jamie Laird, GQHF Visitor Services Coordinator, delve into the intricate customs and traditions surrounding dating, marriage, and love in the Victorian Era. Become versed in the strict courting rules, elaborate Victorian flirting techniques like the “Language of the Fan,” and all that was expected when both parties finally said, “I do.” Learn about Romanticism- a movement that gained momentum in the late 1800s- which emphasized inspiration, subjectivity, and the primacy of the individual and how it not only influenced Art and Literature but also ideas and romantic notions of the Victorian era.
