Antique Appraisal      

    

Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal on Wednesday, November 19, 2014!  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 julie@thehistorypeople.org for further information.




History in a Pint 

November 20, 2014, from  6 PM - 7 PM

Carmody Irish Pub & Brewing

308 E. Superior Street
Duluth, MN  55802





 

“History in a Pint,” the local history discussion series sponsored by Veterans’ Memorial Hall and the St. Louis County Historical Society, will offer My Time in the Merchant Marines during World War II at Carmody’s Irish Pub and Brewing, Thursday, November 20th starting at 6 pm.

The event is free and open to the public. The November speaker, local veteran Bill Stein, served in the Merchant Marines during World War II. It was a perfect fit for Bill, since he already had his sea legs from working on the boats here in the Duluth Harbor. While the main focus will be on his Merchant Marines experience, Bill will also give a short history lesson on how the Merchant Marines was founded in the United States back in 1775, during the Revolutionary War. Bill will also touch on his service during the Korean War, when he served in the U.S. Army.

History in a Pint is an on-going series sponsored by Veteran’s Memorial Hall, which was established in 1910, and is a joint program of the St. Louis County Historical Society and the military service veterans of northeastern Minnesota. Its mission is to gather, preserve, interpret, and promote the rich and diverse human experiences of veterans, their families and communities, through museum, archival and educational programs. Its website: www.vets-hall.org, features more than 6,000 local veteran’s personal stories.

We advise guests to park in the parking ramp behind and connected to the Sheraton, which is across the street from Carmody’s.
