Wayne County Historical Society Meeting Room

Take your Antiques on the Road and Share their story!

Antiques bring the past to life! Most families have heirlooms with a story, and to us those are priceless. But are they really? Be it a treasured lock of hair from your 5th great grandmother, your great grandparents love letters, a box of recipes from grandma an 18th century coverlet from Switzerland or a beautiful 1853 Morso Wood Cookstove made in Denmark, each piece comes with a story as valuable as the heirloom itself.

Bring your family heirloom and share its unique story. For fun you can have your heirloom appraised by none other than Calvin Kennett from Kennett’s Antiques & Trading post at our next Historical Society General Meeting.
