Sam & Helen Walton Marriage Celebrated on Valentine’s Day


Valentine’s Day may seem like just a holiday for some, but for the Walton Family, it is a day of special celebration. 

Sam and Helen Walton were married on this day in 1943, and this holiday would have been their 76th wedding anniversary, so the Walmart Museum in Bentonville celebrated in a special way.

The museum’s north gallery, which displays Mrs. Walton’s wedding dress, was decorated with fresh flowers instead of the usual silk flowers.

Other festivities included complimentary carnations, a ‘Sam Loves Helen’ trivia quiz and a Valentine’s Day Sundae in the Spark Café.
