Three certified appraisers will be available each day from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. An additional certified gun appraiser will be present on Sunday during the same hours. A $5.00 fee will be charged for each item appraised. Appraisers and specialties are as follows: John Kimble, Seeley Lake, general; Donald Baughman, Bigfork, fine art, furntiure, American Indian, Western items, photography and Montana history; Tim Gordon, Missoula, general and art; Alan Rogers, Oriental, jewelry, ceramics and oil painting; Louis Yearout, Great Falls, guns.
Living History presentations will take place at 1:00 PM each day. On Saturday afternoon, Ron Ukrainetz and others from Great Falls will appear in character of Lewis & Clark Personalities. On Sunday afternoon, Curley Bear from Browning will present "Native American Impact." These presentations are included in the gate charge of $3.00 for adults (under 12 free) which covers access to appraisers, display collections, and the Saturday night old time music fest.
A nine member group from Big Fork, called "Bending the Strings with Friends," will play music for listening and dancing from 7:00-9:00 PM Saturday.
The Roadshow is sponsored by the Seeley Lake Historical Society, the Lewis and Clark Foundation, the Montana Community Foundation, and the Montana Community for Humanities. It is a fund raiser for the local Historical Society, a not-for-profit organization seeking to establish a museum in the historical old barn located south of Seeley Lake on Highway #83.
