Historical society to host appraisal fair

TIPP CITY — The Tippecanoe Historical Society’s annual Appraisal Fair is coming up on Saturday, Jan. 16.

Bob Honeyman will again be doing the appraisals. The doors open at 11:30 a.m. and the appraisals will begin at

noon. The Fair will again be held at the American Legion on S. Third St. The Ladies Auxiliary will offer lunch items for purchase. Bring in an antique piece of any category.

The fee is $5.00 for every two items.

If you don’t have something to bring, come join us anyway as this is always a fun and interesting event.

Mrs. Grace Kinney did extensive research into the history and families of Tipp City. This information is available at the Museum and the Tipp Library. Find a family in the index or just open any of the green boxes and start reading, you will always find a good story.

The Historical Society Museum is on the corner of Third and Walnut and will be open on Saturdays from 10-12 all winter. This is weather and circumstances permitting. You might want to call first to be sure it is open. For questions about the Appraisal Fair or the Museum call Gordon at 667-3051 or Susie at 698-6798.
