ANTIQUES FOCUSING ON THE OLD WEST EVER TO COME TO AUCTION
Early in our Nation’s history... pioneers considered Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to be the “Gateway to the West”. Years ago, the then Mayor of the Pennsylvania West”. Years ago, the then Mayor of the Pennsylvania paying homage to those pioneering days. To create the magnificent institution he envisioned, the City spent millions for the acquisition of rare artifacts pertaining to the Old West. In the process, the Mayor also saw fit to assemble collections relating to the Revolutionary, Civil and Indian Wars, and a wide range of other historic collectibles. For various reasons, the Old West museum that the Mayor dreamt of was never built. The staggering collection he amassed on behalf of the City - consisting of more than 8,000 antiques, artifacts, firearms, and rare documents - has languished in Harrisburg’s storage facilities.
