Antiques Roadshow

Phoenix, Az (#212)

"Antiques Roadshow" looks back to celebrate the history of Phoenix. Almost one thousand years ago, 50,000 Hohokam -- ancient ancestors of southwestern Native Americans -- lived in Pueblo Grande, a village built around a sophisticated canal and irrigation system that helped the community thrive. The community was mysteriously abandoned, but the canals were resurrected by settlers hundreds of years later, and grew to become Phoenix. Host, Chris Jussel, explores the canals -- one of the city's great treasures. Among the appraisals at the Phoenix Civic Plaza are tips on how to care for antique furniture by Skinner's Karen Keane; and a rare collection of carriage clocks presented by independent dealer Gordon Converse.
