Monrovia Historical Society’s Answer to ‘Antiques Roadshow’

Ever wanted to bring something to an Antiques Roadshow event and have someone tell you about it? The Monrovia Historical Society will host its own version of the popular show on Aug. 3 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Library Community Room (321 S. Myrtle Ave.).

Solve a family mystery or get advice from the following local experts:

  • Chris Shackelford, Pasadena Architectural Salvage, antique house parts (hardware, fixtures).
  • Norm Haley, expert in antique automobiles and rehabbing old structures.
  • Steve Baker, city historian, antique furniture, early American glass and Monroviana.
  • There may also have an expert from a major auction house or two.

Participants should take one to two items they are curious about. If it’s large (like a desk or an airplane), or attached to your home, take a picture.

This event is free to Monrovia Historical Society members and $5 for non-members. RSVP by calling (626) 675-8323 or emailing monroviahistoricalsociety1896@gmail.com.
