What's New In New York State!

Antique Engine Jamboree & Powerfest at Hanford Mills Museum

, New York City | Arts & Culture

The Antique Engine Jamboree at Hanford Mills Museum features antique tractors, Model A Fords, outboard motors, Ford Doodlebugs, hit and miss engines, model steam engines, and water-cooled and air-cooled gas engines. Exhibitors this year include individual collectors as well as members of the Franklin Doodlebug Club, the Mohican Car Club, the Antique Outboard Motor Club, Tired Iron of Butternut Valley, and more.  The 1957 Nash Metropolitan Hook and Ladder Fire Truck Ride from the Catskill Game Farm will be onsite, giving rides to visitors. Tickled Pink BBQ will be selling its delicious sandwiches, and the Charlotte Valley Presbyterian Church will be selling wonderful homemade pies and chili.  Kids can enjoy a variety of fun activities and learn about power transfer and power generation. We have a slate of new STEM-related activities we are eager to offer. “The antique engines on display demonstrate the ingenuity of the past,” says Hanford Mills Executive Director Liz Callahan. “The exhibitors have great stories to tell of the hours of tinkering, detective work and mechanical know-how necessary to bring these engines back to working order, and to keep them that way.” Source and image source: http://www.hanfordmills.org/
