In working together to preserve our local history, the New York Steam Engine Association has opened a museum displaying various antique equipment. The NYSEA’s hope is to promote education, interest and provide people the chance to see the equipment powered by steam or gas that the generations before us used. The equipment you will see here was used on our farms, in the sawmills as well as for construction.

We are very proud to be able to display New York built equipment. Built in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Equipment including:

  • The Fishkill. A stationary industrial steam engine. The only one [1] known to exist.
  • The SW Woods built in Clyde, New York. A steam traction engine.
  • Lang & Button, a steam traction engine built in 1909 in Ithaca, New York.
  • The Stevens, this steam traction engine was built in Auburn, New York before 1900.
  • Another steam traction engine, the Groton. Built in 1891 from Groton, New York.
  • Not built in New York, but rich in history, the Avery prairie tractor.

There is no admission cost for the museum.

The museum will be open Memorial Day through Labor Day each Wednesday from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm or by appointment.

For an appointment call, Rick Finley at (585)-721-6172 or Gary Love at (585)-394-8102

We hope that you will come and take the opportunity to take a step back in time to see this equipment from days gone by. Please join the NYSEA’s passion for… Demonstrating the Past, To Educate the Future.
