Appraisers See History
One of the fun things about being an appraiser is the chance to see and touch history. Exploring old vacant homes and buildings gives you a chance to really look at the architecture used when it was built and to discover things that have been ignored, lost or just plain forgotten.
Recently I had the chance to appraise an old bank. Inside was the original safe from probably 1890-1900. Very cool. There were also many files here that had historical significance that need to be saved. If anyone knows how to contact the Yalobusha Historical Society, please leave a comment.
