Post-1920 farm equipment and artifacts have been moved to the new machine shed at the Clinton Engines Museum, allowing more room to view the non-powered implements, artifacts, Cornelius Log Cabin and older pioneer items still located in the Penningroth Machine Shed.
Some long-buried treasures have resurfaced in the machine shed, and the Jackson County Historical Society is looking for assistance in identifying them. Be sure to stop at the machine shed during Pioneer Day to see if you can identify any of the items located in the center aisle.
Admission is $5 at the gate; children 12 and younger are admitted free.
