Preservation Week Road Show

Bring Us Your Treasures!

Professional appraisers and conservators will be on hand at the History Center to provide guests free consultations. Appraisers can provide insight into the value of items, taking original condition into account, while conservators can discuss with guests an object’s structure, age and the best manner of care. Bringing appraisers and conservators together is a unique addition to the popular “road show” format and a great opportunity to find out more about valued family heirlooms and how to preserve them for future generations. Free informative programs about how to care for textiles and family photographs are offered throughout the day.

As with most road show events, there are limitations on the number, size and types of objects we can handle.

Guests may register for a free appointment at The 16 consultants, their specialties and available time slots will be listed. You can have appointments with up to two consultants and are asked to list the specific item you intend to bring. Register to have the IHS Preservation Imaging photographer carefully handle items to provide free digital scanning for single photographs, documents or letters. Call (317) 232-1882 to make a ticketed, timed reservation.
