Antique, art and collectible experts from The Appraisers Road Show will hold the event which is open to the public.
The proceeds will support educational programs at Locust Grove.
The event offers everyone the opportunity to have their heirlooms and collectibles verbally analyzed and given an auction estimate. Specialized experts will be available to talk with directly.

No appointments are needed.

Besides these treasures, a number of other surprises have been found at all price levels, often to the delight of the owners.
