Plan to Attend Antiques Sideshow

The 2012 Antiques Sideshow – the Brazos Valley’s version of the Antiques Roadshow – will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2012, in the cafeteria of Fannin Elementary School, located at Baker and 29th Streets in Bryan.  Doors will open at 9:45 AM with reviews beginning at 10:00 AM.  Doors will close at 1:30 PM to allow for all who have entered to visit with a reviewer.  A $10 donation admits visitors for a review consultation.  Categories will be announced next week; however, no furniture will be allowed due to space constraints.

Dust off your attic treasures and Grandma’s hand-me-downs and join us on May 19th for an exciting day at the 2012 Antiques Sideshow!

Where in Brazos County?

Commencing this month, the Brazos Heritage Society will be conducting a monthly contest, in which readers of Heritage Brazos will be asked to identify a structure or a location in Brazos County.  The winner of this first contest will be treated to a Starbucks coffee by Society Events Coordinator Fran Lamb.  In addition, as part of the prize, the winner will be provided a book – Historic Brazos County.

In this first contest, readers are asked to identify the location of the building pictured above.  Submissions may be sent to Dan Beto at dan.beto@gmail.com.
