Alameda Museum Gears Up for Jan. 2 Sale, Talks

The Alameda Museum is planning an interesting estate sale for after the holidays: from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 2.

A local family that includes three generations is selling furnishings and objects that date back to the Civil War (1861-1865).

At the same time, the museum is having a clearance sale of its own items, says curator George Gunn.

Also on the 2010 agenda for the museum is an exhibit on Neptune Beach (1917-1939) and several lectures on local architecture and development; see page 8 of the group’s latest online newsletter.

A talk on bungalows is set for March 25, a lecture on the Alameda Naval Air Station takes place April 29; and a presentation on glass panels in Alameda is set for May 10.  The events take place on Thursday and start at 7 p.m. at the museum, 2021 Alameda Avenue.
