Little White School Museum volunteer Stephanie Just helps a visitor with her Victorian Valentine project. Families are invited to visit the museum, 72 Polk Street in Oswego, this coming Sunday, Feb. 12, to make and take home an instant heirloom during the museum’s annual free “Victorian Valentines” craft activity. Crafters age 3 and up are invited to stop in any time between 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. Feb. 12. For more information, call the museum at 630-554-2999.

Get into the Valentine's Day spirit from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12, when the Little White School Museum offers “Victorian Valentines,” a free, family make and take craft activity.

The museum is located at 72 Polk Street (Polk at Jackson), just two blocks from Oswego’s historic downtown business district.

Valentine traditions are wide-ranging, but usually involve the exchange of some token or small gift and a Valentine card. At one time, these tokens were hand-made.

During "Victorian Valentines," visitors aged 3 years and up are invited to create their own home-made Valentines similar to ones made in the 1890s. Families are invited to stop in any time between 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. during the activity. Children must attend with an adult.

While at the museum, visitors are also invited to visit the annual seasonal “Be My Valentine: Greetings from Oswego’s Past” special exhibit in the community museum room featuring vintage Valentine cards, sheet music, 3-D pop-up cards and table decorations and other related items from days gone by. The special exhibit will be available through February.

Regular museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free. The museum is a joint project of the Oswegoland Heritage Association and the Oswegoland Park District.

For more information, call 630-554-2999, see them on Facebook, send an email to, or visit the museum web site at
