What did “love” mean to nineteenth-century New Englanders? During this program, visitors will explore the multiple romantic relationships of the Dickinson family at the Homestead and The Evergreens.

Guests are invited to read from family letters as part of the experience. At the program’s conclusion, guests will join their guides over wine and cheese to continue discussion of nineteenth-century romance.
