Antique Appraisal 


Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal on Wednesday, July 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 HallPlease 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 julie@thehistorypeople.org for further information.



 

LUNCH WITH THE HISTORY PEOPLE


When: Thursday, July 21, 2016, from noon – 1 PM

Who: Anthony Bush has played amateur baseball for 19 years and been the Proctor Rails’ pitching coach for 13 years.  His baseball articles have been published by the Duluth Budgeteer, Proctor Journal and Zenith City Online.  He is a member of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) and has been published on their website (www.SABR.org).  His piece on the history of the Wade Stadium was included in the Duluth Huskies’ souvenir game program.  Last summer, he spoke at Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum on baseball history.

What: Anthony discusses “Work or Fight: The 1918 Duluth-Mesaba League & How the Great War Brought Great Baseball to the Twin Ports & the Range.”  In addition to the war, this was the time of the Cloquet Fire and the Spanish Flu.  According to Anthony, “The baseball faithful were treated to the best league the area has ever known as many of the nation's current major- and minor-league players flocked to Duluth, Duluth's Riverside neighborhood, Hibbing and Superior to find industrial work deemed essential to the war effort, and to play a little Sunday baseball.”

Where: The event will be held in the Underground on the first floor of the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot), at 506 West Michigan Street, Duluth, Minnesota. 

There will be limited theater-style seating (no tables), but feel free to bring your own bag lunch.  Seating is first-come, first-served (no reservations).  Admittance to this event is free to the public.  ARCO coffee is provided.
