Celebrate Valentine’s Day with classic poems of the nineteenth century in the elegant drawing room of the Hill House. Costumed actors Craig Johnson, Laura Salveson, and Ann Daly will perform a wide range of beloved poems by Dickinson, Poe, Longfellow, Browning, and others dealing with love, romance, temperance, sports, and war — even poems about James J. Hill. The one-hour program will be followed by light refreshments and tours of the home.

And if you’re looking for more modern poetry to read aloud to your beloved, check out our beautiful collection by Minnesota poets, Where One Voice Ends, Another Begins: 150 Years of Minnesota Poetry edited by Robert Hedin.
