A display of antique valentines attracted visitors Saturday to the New Bloomfield Area Historical Society.

Craig Abbott, a member of the New Bloomfield R-3 Board of Education, said he enjoyed looking at the old three-dimensional valentines that fold out for display.

Nancy West of New Bloomfield collects old valentines and postcards. She and Jane Hurtt of New Bloomfield brought several antique valentines for the display.

Dale Lawson, who volunteers at the Historical Society, said the antique valentine display will be available the next two Saturdays in February from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the New Bloomfield Area Historical Society building, 313 Oak St., in New Bloomfield.

"We also will make the display available by appointment if someone wants to see the display and cannot come on a Saturday," Lawson said.
