Learn about the historical significance and monetary value of your family heirlooms at the History Center’s Pittsburgh’s Hidden Treasures event.
Nearly 30 appraisers will assess the historical significance of visitors’ items and provide a verbal assessment of potential monetary value.
KDKA-TV | CBS Pittsburgh's Dave Crawley, Mary Robb Jackson, and Lynne Hayes-Freeland will roam the History Center seeking the most interesting items for interviews. The most unique items will be featured as part of special 30 minute programs on KDKA-TV later this year, hosted by KDKA’s Ken Rice and History Center President and CEO Andy Masich.
