Ron Patch: A Look at Some of the Treasures of the Walpole Heritage Museum

Local historian, antiques expert and author Ron Patch will give an illustrated tour of items in the Walpole Historical Society’s collection on Wednesday, November 14, in the Walpole Town Hall at 7 PM.

Patch, of Chester, Vermont, has been an antiques dealer for nearly half a century. He is president of the Chester (VT) Historical Society and a weekly columnist in the Vermont Journal and The Shopper. His column, Local History, is widely read and appreciated.

Using a slideshow, Ron will talk about significant pieces in the Walpole collection, which he will compare to examples from other regions, using close-up slides illustrating differences in design and technique.

Patch will include the Society’s Huntington tall clock, eagle weathervane, Hannah Davis hatboxes and the Sheraton two-drawer bag table and more.

The event is free and open to all.  Refreshments will be served.
