Chase County’s Road Show coming to county museum
The Chase County Museum in Champion is excited to once again host the Chase County Road Show this Sunday from 1-4 p.m.
The guest speaker and appraiser, Johnny Walker, was born on a farm north of a Hamlet and is now living in Trenton. Walker has been selling and evaluating fine art, period furniture and a wide array of collectables for over 35 years. His appreciation of handmade and unique items began with a diary given to him of his namesake, Civil War Captain John D Elliott.
Walker’s extensive participation in the auction world has further fine-tuned his expertise in appraising items in the communities he visits. He enjoys the creativity and ideals exhibited in items from the past and looks forward to evaluating treasures that the community will bring in for his appraisals.
It is recommended that individuals bring in one or two pieces for his examination.
People may have an opportunity Sunday afternoon to find out what their family treasures or antiques might be worth.
Walker commented that he derives great pleasure in the stories of the hopes and dreams of our early forefathers.
“My hope has become that our youth will preserve the past as they pursue the future,” he said.
