Antique clocks are among the many things Mark F. Moran appraises.

Thank you for supporting WXPR!

WXPR is located at 28 N. Stevens Street, Rhinelander, WI 54501.

Street parking is available in the neighborhood. Our very narrow driveway cannot accommodate come and go traffic. Please allow time to park.  

Choose an item that is easy to carry, hold, and transport. Assistance will NOT be available to handle or transport your item. Be sure you can manage it on your own.

Plan to arrive at your appointment time printed on your pass. This will help us insure your time with Mark F. Moran and serve as many members as possible.

Attendees must sign an event release prior to participating. Because WXPR is a member supported non-profit, the station cannot afford to replace your family heirloom. If your item is damaged or lost while on WXPR’s property, neither WXPR, Mark F. Moran Appraisals, nor any other event partner will be held liable. A printable pdf of the release is below.
