How did our early American counterparts fall in love? Explore some customs and traditions from 18th century America. Learn about rituals from different societal standings, from the enslaved through the wealthiest Marylanders, such as Charles & Margaret Carroll, and the different roles of men and women. This program and tour of Mount Clare will cover topics such as what to look for in a partner, wedding ceremonies, and much more. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice what they learned through interactive activities. Valentine's Day themed refreshments will be provided at the end of the program.
