Lancaster County PA Realty Check: Antique Show at Rock Ford

Antique Show at Rock Ford

Barn at Rock Ford PlantationThe beautiful stone barn at the historic Rock Ford Plantation will be the setting for an antiques show Saturday, September 15 from 9 am to 4 pm.

Rock Ford Plantation is the estate of Edward Hand, a Revolutionary War  General.  The plantation was saved from destruction in 1957 by the Junior League of Lancaster.

Antique dealers will have furniture and antiques for sale in the barn.  The public is also invited to bring their own antiques for  an "Antiques Road Show" type evaluation.  If an heirloon is too large or heavy to bring, photographs may be brought instead - but if bringing photos, they must be of sufficient angles and detail that the experts in attendance can evaluate the condition and any marks on the piece.

Rock Ford Plantation, 881 Rock Ford Road, is south of Lancaster and can be reached off Chesapeake Street.  The antique show is part of the celebration of the fiftieth year of Rock Ford's being saved from demolition.

It's one of the most beautiful barns I've even seen, Brian.

I'd really enjoy being able to attend....
Antiques Road Show is one of the television shows I used to watch regularly....I was always amazed at the things people brought in and learning the history behind each article.

It is a beautiful barn, Jo, in a beautiful setting that still looks like it did in the 18th century.

Brian I love stone building, here in NY we have alot of old stone houses.  Have you seen the Senate House in Kingston?

The Rock Ford barn is really beautiful.

Jennifer, I love old stone buildings, too.  I'm not sure I've seen the Senate House - I may have seen it and not known what it was.  I do remember stone houses in Kingston - some not in great condition - I hope in recent times that many have been restored...
