Many buildings display an overwhelming amount of items ranging from steam engines, combustion engines, agriculture equipment, an old school house, mining museum, blacksmith shop, and steam trains. Volunteers were very friendly and informative.

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.
