Residents of the Valentine neighborhood celebrate the rich history of the area, both the people who settled here in the 1800’s and the sturdy homes and buildings that are, in many cases, still standing. These homes are amazing and reminiscent of a bygone era. Valentine is also well known for its active social life. Neighbors get together for one of the largest 4th of July celebrations in the city. We also hold an annual progressive dinner that takes us into one another’s homes, and we have Valentine’s Day parties, an annual holiday party, and a fall festival.
