We LOVE pets! However, our insurance does not allow pets to be brought onto the grounds. Please make arrangements to leave your pets at home. Thank you for your cooperation.

Austerlitz Antique Appraisal Day, sponsored by the Austerlitz Historical Society, will be held on Sunday May 16th from 10am to 4pm at Old Austerlitz Village, the home of the Austerlitz Historical Society on Route 22 in Austerlitz. Appraisals will be $5 for one item, $10 for two items or $15 for three items. There is a limit of three (3) items per person. Complimentary coffee will be provided. Lunch and other refreshments will be available for purchase. The 1794 Morey-Devereaux House and the 1780 Harvey House will be open for self-guided tours.

The Austerlitz Antique Appraisal Day event features a panel of accredited appraisers who are experts in many different areas who will examine your item and give you a verbal estimate of its worth. Among the appraisal experts will be Rupert Fennell and Karl Gabosh.
