Cowboy Heritage Auction reconnects Stock Show crowd with their roots

Posted:

It's a chance for some Black Hills Stock Show goers to get in touch with their roots.  For others, it's an opportunity to add a new piece to their collection.

The 20th Cowboy Heritage Auction gets under way Saturday morning at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Theater.

History enthusiasts and collectors will have the chance to look at and maybe even take home one of the 350 artifacts on display.

Some of the highlighted pieces in this year's auction are a gold pocket watch once owned by Buffalo Bill Cody's daughter Irma, as well as numerous Duhamel saddles, spurs and cowboy themed artwork.

Old West Collectable Committee Chairman Win Bauer said the auction is a great chance for people to reconnect with days gone by.

"We not only try to sell collectibles but we try to sell history. A lot of folks have maybe lost touch with their past and need a piece or two to remind them where they came from," said Bauer.

A portion of the consignment fees for the items up for sale will be donated to a fund that awards six students scholarships that are going to college with ag related majors.
