Saving History

May 9, 2013

If you're a fan of Antiques Roadshow here on KBTC, your attitude about old photos, documents and objects has probably got you thinking less about a trip to the dump, and more about a trip to the appraiser! But is everything valuable? Is there a difference between an objects value, and its historical importance? Those are the big questions being dealt with by the state's historians who are on a mission to collect, catalog and preserve Washington's history. In this episode of Northwest Now, we'll also learn about the push to digitize historical records and artifacts and the challenges associated with managing the time consuming task.


Program will be available online after broadcast.
