What is Maumee Valley Antique Steam & Gas Association’s purpose? Our purpose is to preserve antique power sources, equipment, skills, activities, and other resources that reflect the rural and urban life of our forefathers for historical education while teaching and training younger individuals how to operate the antique equipment so as to continue our mission to educate individuals in the future.
This summer, we are featuring International Harvester tractors, engines, garden tractors, trucks, and equipment though all other exhibitors are welcome!
We have something to offer the entire family. Come meet the owners of all the antique steam and gas equipment. Let them explain the workings of their equipment, the type of equipment your great (s) grandparents might have used on their farms. This includes engines (steam & gas), tractors, trucks and cars, threshing equipment in action, an on sight Sawyer, sawing lumber, and smell the fresh earth from the plowing of fields from both steam engines and antique tractors. Experience a 15 ton, 125 HP Buckeye Oil Engine, and see a working blacksmith shop.
