Saturday, September 13, is your opportunity to get a professional appraisal of its value – and to help preserve a true Arlington treasure.

This first-ever “Arlington Antiques Appraisal” is designed to raise funds for maintenance and repair of Arlington County’s oldest structure — the Ball-Sellers House (5620 3rd Street South) in the Glencarlyn neighborhood. For a $10-per-item donation to the historic house, professional appraisers Todd Peenstra and Steve Gouterman will examine your treasured item, assess its age and value, and advise you on where to get it repaired or restored if necessary.

The appraisals will be done at nearby Carlin Hall (5711 4th Street South) in a public “show” format from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. To get an item appraised, participants must reserve a spot and pay a $10 fee in advance by clicking here, or by calling the Arlington Historical Society at 703-942-9247. Observers can watch the show for a donation of $5 at the door. Private appraisals will continue until noon.

After having your antique treasures appraised, visitors are welcome to stroll around the corner to the historic Ball-Sellers House at 5620 3rd Street South. The house will be open on September 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and tours are always free. Built about 1750 by John Ball, the house is a rare example of an ordinary person’s dwelling in the 18th century. It was donated to the Arlington Historical Society in 1975 by Mrs. Marian Sellers, the last private owner, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
