Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 7:30 P.MAntique Quest and Appraisal
A unique experience for all.  Have you ever found an item in your attic or cellar and wondered what it could possibly be?  Have you uncovered a family heirloom and thought "what is this worth?" beyond its sentimental value.   Smitty Axtell, Deposit's own Antique Roadshow expert,  can answer both of these questions.  Bring your item and questions to the  Historical meeting and Smitty will carefully examine it and enlighten us all as to its origin, use and value.  The appraisal will cost the bargain price of $5 per item and there is no limit on the number of items you bring.  Smitty will also bring some antiques from his shop to intrigue

      Hope to see you in the back meeting room on the Deposit HIstorical Museum with your questions, heirlooms, or unknowns.  Free refreshments will be served along with engaging conversations.
