BLUE HILL – The Jonathan Fisher House of Blue Hill will hold its annual Antiques Show 9 a.m.- 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Blue Hill Fairgrounds. In its 12th season, this popular fundraiser is an old-fashioned country outdoor show, featuring 27 antiques dealers from around Maine and northern New England with specialties for every taste, from early American to mid-century modern, including art and decorative objects.

General admission is $7, or early buyers admission is $15 to enter at 8 a.m. (not before please, as the dealers will be setting up).

All proceeds benefit the Jonathan Fisher House, a historic house museum in Blue Hill. Fisher’s famed collection of folk art, surveying instruments, woodworking tools, furniture, and farming implements that he designed and personally made are housed at the homestead located at 44 Mines Road, (U.S. 15 S), open throughout the summer 1-4 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, or by appointment. For more information, call the Fisher House at 207-374-2459.
