Antique Appraisal 

Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal on Wednesday, January 20, 2016!  The St. Louis County Historical Society has arranged for Dan Sershon of Northland Estate Services and Denny Mager of Northern Specialty, both experts in antique appraisal, to be at your service from noon until 3 PM in the the Great Hall.  Please arrive no later than 2:30 PM to register in person.

You may bring up to two items per person for an informal oral identification and evaluation of each antique.  If the piece is too large or fragile to be hand-carried, clear photographs with a description of any marks and labels will be sufficient.  

Past participants have thoroughly enjoyed the appraiser’s comments on what is always an interesting assortment of antiques and collectibles.  ARCO coffee is available while you wait.                                                                  

This session is part of an on-going public education program offered by the St. Louis County Historical Society.  Sponsorship does not imply endorsement of this or any other estate/appraisal service, and museum staff is prohibited by professional ethics from making financial appraisals. 

Call (218) 733-7568 or e-mail for further information.

There will not be an Antique Appraisal in December 2015.

Veterans’ Remembrance Dinner Dedicated to “The Year of the Servicewoman”

The St. Louis County Historical Society and its Veterans’ Memorial Hall program invites the public to the 11th annual Veterans Remembrance Dinner on Thursday, December 3, 2015. The theme of this year’s event is the “Year of the Servicewoman: A Salute to Women in the Military.”


The event begins with a social hour at 5:00 p.m. in the Great Hall of the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) and will end by 8:00 p.m. Also spotlighted will be the presentation of the Mike Colalillo Medal of Honor Scholarship, in the amount of $1,000, to this year’s winner.


Proceeds from the event will help support the Veterans’ Memorial Hall program of the St. Louis County Historical Society.


The keynote speaker will be former Chief Master Sergeant Jodi Stauber, who will talk about her career in the Minnesota Air National Guard. Stauber began her military career in 1986 when she enlisted in the Minnesota Air National Guard and rose to become the 148th Fighter Wing’s Command Chief, the highest enlisted position in the unit. As the Command Chief, she reported directly to the Wing Commander on any and all issues affecting the entire enlisted force such as, morale, readiness, retention, promotions, training and recognition. She retired in 2010.


Tickets are $35.00 and can be purchased at the Veterans’ Memorial Hall office at the St. Louis County Heritage and Arts Center (the Depot) or reserved by calling 218-733-7500.


This community-based event is being sponsored by many leading local businesses. The Arrowhead Professional Chefs Association will prepare the dinner and donate these services.


Veterans’ Memorial Hall was established in 1909 and is a program of the St. Louis County Historical Society. It is the mission of Veterans’ Memorial Hall to preserve and collect veterans’ stories and artifacts and to educate the general public about the history of veterans from northeastern Minnesota.
