70th Annual Antique Auction
The Federated Church of Sturbridge and Fiskdale announces its 70th Annual Antique Auction to be held on Saturday, August 10, 2019, on the beautiful Sturbridge Common across from the landmark Publick House Historic Inn.
A real old fashioned country auction, this event is now known as the longest annually held church auction in the nation, according to auction committee chair, Ken Benson.
The auction will be conducted for the 45th year in a row by the Robert H. Glass family of auctioneers. Items up for bid will include an amazing assortment of antique items donated by church and community members, many in original condition and some lovingly restored by local artisans over the past year. The event will be held, rain or shine, under tent, with a preview of items to be sold beginning at 9:00 a.m. and bidding starting promptly at 10:00 a.m.
