Hanover County will host Virginia Tourism’s life-sized LOVE artwork on the lawn of the Hanover Branch Library at Hanover Courthouse from Feb. 11-15 as part of the #HereinHanoverVA campaign to honor the County’s recent
300th birthday recognition.
The #HereinHanoverVA campaign on social media offers a fun,interactive way for Hanoverians to showcase achievements of the past, the
vitality of the present and the promises of a bright future as Hanover Countylooks ahead to the next 300 years.
“What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend than
with a photo of the iconic LOVE letters in beautiful Hanover County,” said HanoverCounty Administrator John A. Budesky. “We invite people to tag #HereinHanoverVA
when they post images on their social media platforms.”
There is plenty of free parking behind the library and inthe Hanover County Government complex and there is no fee to access the LOVE
letters. Visitors are encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancingwhen they are taking photos. You are also invited to admire the historic
Hanover Courthouse, the third oldest in the nation in continuous use. TheHanover Museum of History and Culture will be opening in the Historic Clerk’s
Office building across the lawn later this year.
“We are excited to share the LOVE in Hanover County at a spot where so many people can enjoy being a part of it, helping them to discover for themselves why Virginia is for Lovers,” said Rita McClenny, president and CEO of the Virginia Tourism Corporation. Anyone sharing photos on social media also can tag #LOVEVA, Virginia Tourism’s hashtag for the LOVEletters.
