Auctioneering in the News

The presentation by auctioneer Archie Steenburgh, organized by the Historical Society, received a terrific write-up in the Valley News under the headline "Tales from the Auction Block."


The Haverhill Historical Society has organized a series of six programs to help celebrate the 250th anniversary of the founding of Haverhill, New Hampshire and Newbury, Vermont.

On Sunday, February 10, auctioneer Archie Steenburgh presented a program in Alumni Hall on "Auctioneering in New Hampshire and Vermont." In over four decades as a north country auctioneer, Steenburgh has had the opportunity to examine numerous examples of the region's material culture. He shared anecdotes, observations, and information drawn from his experience.

Steenburgh also came with numerous items of historical interest for display, including two Osgood clocks.
