This weekend there was an antique machinery show. For those who enjoy the putt-putt, hiss, grinding and chugging of old engines, this is the place to go. See how things ran in days long ago. There is a large collection of old equipment- steam shovels, steam rollers, tractors, steam engines etc. besides what is brought to the show by private... More

Great place for a family trip. A lot of walking, bumping your head and slipping... But it was cool. The staff were really informative as well.

We went along on this excursion mostly to humor our daughter, who is very much interested in locomotives, steam engines ( the kind that used to power New England's factories) and equipment of all kinds. We ended up loving it! Our amazing volunteer guide explained all the principles so well the even the mechanically dis-inclined understood. There is also farm... More

The antique machinery - went there to see the vintage steam engines and cars - very interesting to see a period of history not focused on main line railroads. This is a good place to take young children to show them how transportation of good occurred nearly a hundred years ago. As a train buff and enthusiast taking pictures of... More

We happened upon this enclave of all things mechanical quite by chance on a weekday when it was us and a school group touring. None of the many displays were running as they seem to do on weekends, which would have been even cooler. Well worth a visit!

Steam powered everything is the theme here, stuff from the turn of the century in 1900. Helpful and interesting staff and volunteers added another dimension to the visit. Look for the festival weekend when more stuff is brought in.

I am a machinery buff, and the variety of old steam engines, natural(underground)gas driven was delightful. Power units big and small all working and staffed with informative, knowledgeable volunteers. A piece of our very important past comes alive here, and you can can feel the passion and pride of all those who make this possible.
