Annual Silent Auction

Each summer the Sturgis Historical Society holds a silent auction for goods that are made and donated by our loyal supporters. We welcome donations from all local artists and creatives – amateur or professional! Past years have featured auctions of hand-painted windows, chairs, and wreaths. Check our social media feeds on Facebook and Instagram to stay in the know about our silent auctions.
