"What's in your attic?" Some Found out at History Road Show

Posted: Updated:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

What's in Your Attic? tThat was the theme of the 2-ND Annual "Amateur History Road Show".

The event was held at the Gardner Museum in Quincy.

There was a wide variety of displays being shown, from baseball to tractors.

Organizers say despite the rain,  they had a good turn out.

"Pleased and happy with the efforts for this year because we have more than doubled our participants for the road show. So we've had an excellent turn out," said Sherry Brothers.

Admission to the event was just a canned good, which will be donated to a local food bank.

Among the artifacts brought to last year's show was a "First Holy Communion" certificate from St. Joseph Church in Quincy, signed in December 1887 by Father Augustus Tolton while he served as the parish priest.
