Celebrating the Ingenuity of the Past, Present and Future

The Antique Engine Jamboree at Hanford Mills Museum features antique tractors, Model A Fords, outboard motors, Doodlebugs, hit and miss engines, model steam engines, and water-cooled and air-cooled gas engines. Exhibitors are individual collectors as well as members of the Franklin Doodlebug Club, the Southern Maine Antique Tractor Club, Tired Iron of Butternut Valley, Blue Mountain Antique Steam and Gas, Southern Tier Antique Gas and Steam Engine Association, the Hudson Mohawk Chapter of the Pioneer Gas Engine Association, the Antique Outboard Motor Club, and the Mohican Car Club. Popular features include a 1926 Ahrens Fox Pumper Firetruck and the 1957 Nash Metropolitan Hook and Ladder Fire Truck Ride from the Catskill Game Farm.

“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.”

The Museum’s Steam Team operate the wood-fired steam boiler and steam engines.   Hands-on kids activities, BBQ, pie, local bluegrass music, and demonstrations in the Mill round out the Antique Engine Jamboree.

The Jamboree is included with regular Museum admission, which is free for children 12 and under, Museum members, and residents of zip codes near Hanford Mills (13757, 13739, 13786, 13750, and 13806).
