Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - It’s time for round two. The second of three O' Rourke Estate Sales is set for later this week in Moorhead. It’s another chance to see and buy a piece of local history from one of this area's great collectors.

James O'Rourke was the man behind the Rourke Museum and Gallery. He died last year at 77. Since last year, Deana and Chuck Marx have sorted and organized hundreds of valuable art and antique pieces Rourke collected during his world travels.

Chuck Marx – Marx Estate Sales: “I keep saying he might be here and looking over my shoulders and I think laying it out he would be pleased. I would be.”

The sale starts Thursday at 10 AM at 316 5th Street South in Moorhead and runs through Saturday. There is a preview of the items Wednesday afternoon starting at 4:30.
