Curious about the Blackmer house? 'Artifacts' available at yard sale

SALISBURY — Dave and Sherry Rice kept making trips back and forth to their truck.
“There were some very unusual things,” Rice said this morning, carrying an 80-quart galvanized tub full of, for lack of a better term, “artifacts” from the Blackmer House yard sale.
Historic Salisbury Foundation announced last week it had reached an agreement with Jonathan Blackmer to buy the 1820-21 house at 112 S. Fulton St.
The foundation is expected to close on the house Monday. Meanwhile, Blackmer is holding a three-day yard sale, which started today, to clear out many remaining items from the house and garage.
This yard sale is particularly interesting because the house — damaged extensively in a Dec. 1, 1984, fire — was the longtime Salisbury residence of actors Sidney and Suzanne Kaaren Blackmer.
There will be more on the yard sale in Friday’s edition of the Post.
Contact Mark Wineka at 704-797-4263.
