The historic Patrick House in New Philadelphia will again host Heritage Home Association's last benefit garage sale of the season on Saturday, August 24, from 8AM to 2PM, featuring architectural salvage such as old and very old interior and exterior house hardware, fixtures, accessories, and a few other antiques.
Located at 233 Fair Avenue, NW, Patrick House was lovingly restored by its owners, Hugh & Carolyn Berry of New Philadelphia. The sale takes place in the rear of the property and in the garage.
Customers will find light fixtures and globes, interior and exterior doors and door hardware, windows and window latches and other related parts, moldings, pillars, sinks, signs, corbels, mantels, gas lights, grates, spindles, drawer pulls, brackets, shutters, bathroom fixtures, slate for roofing (or arts and crafts), slabs of old fireplace marble, and perhaps even some old tools. All inventory is donated by friends and members of the Heritage Home Association.
Proceeds of the sale will support the Association in its ambitious mission: the documentation and preservation of the architecturally and historically significant homes, buildings, and neighborhoods of Tuscarawas County, cultivating awareness and appreciation of this part of the local heritage, encouraging interest in preserving historic structures within the community, and educating those who are interested in preservation or are actively involved in the restoration of historically significant structures or community landmarks.
Last month, The Association presented awards to 11 Heroes of Preservation and awarded a 20th Century Heritage Home Plaque to Natalie and Al Cline for their Garver House B&B in Strasburg.
Donations of Old House Parts (pre-1950) and antiques are currently being accepted. Contributions of merchandise and/or cash donations may be tax deductible, as the organization is tax-exempt under IRS Section 501(c)(3).
For more information about the sale, about making contributions of old house parts or offering financial support, or to volunteer your help, call George at 330-364-5757.
To date, 65 Tuscarawas County historic homes and buildings have been awarded Heritage Home Plaques, 20th Century Plaques, or Historic Markers by the Association, including the county courthouse in New Philadelphia and Dover’s historic Reeves Victorian Mansion.
