Stephenson House organizers seeking donations for online fall antique auction

EDWARDSVILLE — The 1820 Col. Benjamin Stephenson House is planning to host another online antique and collectible auction this fall. The historic site has hosted an in-person auction for more than 15 years every October, but COVID-19 forced organizers to cancel last year’s auction and rethink the best way to keep the fundraiser going. Now, bidders from the area and across the country will have the opportunity to peruse a variety of items in the convenience of the own homes. The auction will open in August with bidding ending Oct. 7.
