Antiques day filled the museum

Agassiz Harrison Historical Society thankful for successful day

The Antique Road Show, hosted by the Agassiz Harrison Historical Society which took place at the Agassiz-Harrison Museum on Sat., Aug. 24, was a great success.

People from all over the local area, and some from as far off as Vancouver, came to have their unique and historical items appraised by Gail Pirie, who did the appraising with a professional and knowledgeable manner.

Those who did not have their items appraised marveled as spectators when the items were evaluated, creating a large crowd of people in the waiting area of the museum, where the appraisals took place. All throughout the day, many people came for appraisals, to spectate and to indulge in the vast history the museum has to offer. The Agassiz-Harrison Historical Society would like to extend their thanks to everyone who helped make the event such a success and to everyone who came for a day of historical revelations about their family heirlooms and household items.
