JHS holds hometown 'Road Show'


In the spirit of the popular public television “Antique Road Show,” The Jacksonport Historical Society is inviting area residents to have local appraisers examine their “Treasures or Trash.”

The event will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 23,  at the Jacksonport Town Hall. The doors will open at 6 p.m. to give people attending time to put their items on display and give the appraisers a little more time to evaluate ‘them.

Appraisers Geri Wegner and Sebastian Riccobono from Boat House Antiques in Institute will try to put a rough value on pictures, jewelry, dishes, or pictures of items too large for one person to carry.

Wegner and Riccobono, who have volunteered their services at the Antiques Road Show in Milwaukee, will evaluate antiques brought to the event. They also will talk about cleaning and care of antiques.

The public is invited; refreshments will be served.
