    Virtual Lunchtime Lecture: Communication Via Flowers & Fans

    June 11, 2021

    Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden

    Join us for our monthly discussion of an aspect of life in early 19th-century America as we explore the history behind the Language of Flowers and the Language of the Fan. Why were they popular in Victorian times? Were they really a secret means of communication? What were the supposed meanings behind specific flowers and fan movements?
