Valentines for the Black Horse Inn – Best Date Ever

The Black Horse Inn at Morristown was shown some love Saturday when it got “heart bombed” for Valentine’s Day.

Heart bombing is the act of showering an older or historic place with expressions of affection and love. Heart bombs are love letters to historic places nationwide and are attached to places both safe and threatened. It is an activity promoted by the National Trust for Historic Places.
