Getting the value appraised

Many unique items were appraised at this year’s annual Appraisal Fair, held at the Augusta Historical Museum. The event is a fundraiser which benefits the Historical Society. This year’s appraisers were Kay McCollom, Mark McCollom, Larry Austin and Kris Walker. Dr. Donald Blakeslee, WSU professor of Anthropology, returned this year to examine Native American artifacts.
