The Mid-West Tool Collectors Association and the Maitland Historical Society will stage an antique tool show & sale on August 15th. There will be displays and demonstrations of tools & machinery from 1885 to 1910. There will also be tables for buying, selling and trading antique tools with related items. Proceeds will benefit the Waterhouse Carpentry Shop Museum, which was built about 1884 by Maitland settler and builder William H. Waterhouse. The museum is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The show is held at the Maitland Civic Center, just a short stroll from Thurston House. The show is from 8am – 3pm, and costs $2.
