Legends tell of Valentine being a priest from Ancient Rome who helped couples marry against the wishes of the emperor. It’s also thought that we get the closing “Your Valentine” from Valentine signing it to a girl he loved. Not long after the tradition of handmade Valentine cards came to America in the 1800’s, Ester A. Howland of Massachusetts was coined the “Mother of Valentines” for mass producing Valentine cards across the U.S. Did you know that today’s teachers receive the most cards each year, of the approximate 1 billion sent out?
These days modern couples celebrate Valentine’s Day with a romantic, relaxing weekend at the Westport Inn. Here they enjoy our King bed accommodations, flowers, chocolates and champagne upon arrival with our Valentine's Day Package.
