Do you ever have a hankering for a simpler time? Have you ever dreamed of the days when couples courted and chivalry was still alive? Well, the Park Forest Historical Society in Park Forest Illinois is recreating romance 1950’s style. The society has curated a special exhibit at the Park Forest House Museum. Their 1950’s-themed festivities allow visitors the chance to experience Valentine’s Day the way things were in a simpler, gentler time.
Stepping back in time
Opening today and running through March 4, the exhibit features a truly sweet depiction of Valentine’s Day. The entire museum is dressed up for the holiday with festive, period decorations. The exhibit even includes a display of antique Valentines dating all the way back to 1880.
One of the most charming displays is the recreation of an elementary classroom set up for a holiday party the way it would have been celebrated at the time. The decor even features a construction paper “mailbox” at every desk.
