Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum

Gas Engine Row

Gas Engine Row displays the Museum's collection of large gas and diesel engines, some of which are the only existing examples left. Engines like the ones at the Museum were used from the 1890's to the 1940's for powering everything from farms to factories. After the 1940's there was a lessening need for many of these engines as electricity became more available and higher horsepower electric motors were developed. As a result many of the engines from that time were left abandon or sent to the Scrap yard.

We run the engines at our shows on the 3rd and 4th weekends in June and October.
