Heart Bombing 2015

Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love – whether for your favorite person, pet, or even an old building you absolutely adore. Heart bombing is a fun, public display of affection for historic places across the country. The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota worked with building owners and advocates to affix hearts to a small number of historic buildings around Minnesota as a show of support for these great places.
