Absolutely enjoy the steam show every year. Just a good time. Relaxing and family friendly.

The signature event of this site us a three day steam show in early fall, featuring antique farm equipment, farming demonstrations, and related displays. There are rural history displays, relocated buildings like a 1 room school or country church, a band stand and other displays. Although there are steam displays like a sawmill, other antique farming equipment like old tractors are commonly featured. This is a labor of love from local hobbyists rather than a professionally curated historical museum, but when active it resembles living history demonstrations from the early to mid-20th century.
