Woodyard and Working Objects

Our Woodyard and working objects teams meet on various days, primarily Tuesdays and weekends where demonstrations occur. If you have a passion for things mechanical, then this could be the place for you. Our collection of working objects ranges from a vast array of stationary engines to tractors, agricultural equipment, bicycles and of course a working woodyard. The woodyard has a number of different saw benches from a modern band mill to a turn of the century rack saw, driven by a variety of stationary engines, including a large portable steam engine to drive the main saw bench. There is much to do in this area of the museum from maintaining and operating the collection to ground up restorations bringing new objects back to life.
