February brings love to Clague House Museum

Valentine's Day dates back to Roman times, however it wasn't until 1840 that Richard Cadbury designed and illustrated the first decorative Valentine candy boxes. Please join the Westlake Historical Society on Feb. 13 to learn more about the history of Valentine's Day as we celebrate with our annual old-fashioned Valentine's Day party.

The Clague family home, located at 1371 Clague Road, will be your destination to enjoy an afternoon of crafts, sweet treats and museum tours. There is no charge for the event, but donations are gratefully accepted. Members of the historical society will conduct guided tours of the museum. 

The party starts at 1 p.m. Reservations are requested, by calling the historical society at 216-848-0680, but are not required.

Also available are beautiful candy bouquets that will get your Valentine's attention. Please see our website, westlakeohiohistory.com, for details.
