Marsha Bemko, Executive Producer for Antiques Roadshow, returned for a visit in early May and shared some of her favorite finds and memories of her visit to Charleston. Listen to her interview with Beth Vorhees on West Virginia Morning, at about 8 minutes into the audio segment.

Highlights from Charleston include a rare 1854 landscape of Charleston by Edward Beyer, a Gold Rush log and journal chronicling the journey of the owner’s great-uncle from Boston to San Francisco, and a Noel Coward collection, consisting of a painting, gold box, and playbill. 

About 4,531 people attended the Charleston event from 41 states and two Canadian provinces, selected randomly from 12,825 ticket applicants.
