HOPEWELL CAPE – The Albert County Historical Society will be holding their annual fundraising Antique Road Show on Sunday, September 22nd, 2013 from 2pm to 4 pm at the Hopewell Cape Community Hall, Albert County Museum, 3940 Route 114.

Everyone is invited to bring their antiques of all types for an interesting afternoon of explanation and evaluation.  After a huge success last year, the plans for the afternoon have been improved to make the afternoon even more enjoyable for all.

The fee for appraisal is $5.00 per item or have 3 items appraised for $10.00, with all the proceeds benefiting the Albert County Museum.  The appraisal fees include admission, but, if you would just like to stop in and learn a bit about the wonderful vastness of Albert County culture, there is a general admission of $2 per person.  The appraisals will be done on a first come first served basis.

The certified appraisers again this year are father and son, Steve and Stuart Liptay, from Liptay Auctions, who very generously donate their time for this great fundraising event.

About frederictonregionmuseum

The Fredericton Region Museum was founded in 1934 by the York-Sunbury Historical Society. The Society was formed in 1932 and now has members from all over North America, however, most are from Central New Brunswick. In 1969 the Museum found permanent headquarters in the Officer's Quarters (571 Queen Street) in the heart of downtown Fredericton. The Society and Museum remain a nonprofit enterprise with a small paid staff and numerous volunteers. They work tirelessly to create informative exhibits, organize programs and events as well as publish a local history periodical The Officers' Quarters. The Fredericton Region Museum is the home of the famous Coleman Frog. He is the 42lb wonder that lived in the Killarney Lake just north of Fredericton about 100 years ago. The Fredericton Region Museum is a gateway into the exciting history and diverse heritage of central New Brunswick. Because central New Brunswick is where the provincial capital is located, and because it served as a meeting place for Aboriginals, Loyalists, Acadian, and other European settlers, the Fredericton Region Museum is an excellent place to start. With over 4000 square feet of exhibit space and a collection of over 30,000 artefacts the museum is a fun and exciting way to look into our past.
