Antique Stationary Machines program & display

This event is on November 1500, 2014

The small stationary machine revolutionized work, giving technology and power to all aspects of industrial and farm life. The number, types and uses of these machines were once huge, but declined as electrification became widespread. Tim Christoff will be sharing a part of his collection of antique stationary machines for display here at the library the last half of November.  Come by and see this amazing artifact of farm technology.

Tim will be speaking Saturday, November 22 at 2:00 p.m. He will be starting one of the engines if the weather cooperates.
