Connecticut Antique Machinery Association
31 Kent Cornwall Rd, Kent, CT 06757
This all-volunteer organization operates a museum "dedicated to the preservation, restoration and demonstration of antique machinery from our rich industrial and agricultural past." The Industrial Hall of Steam Power houses stationary steam engines, including a Noble T. Greene model from the late 1800s with a 12-foot-diameter flywheel. The museum also has a narrow-gauge railroad, sawmill, blacksmith shop, internal combustion engines and exhibits about equipment used in agriculture, road construction and mining. Most of the equipment is operable. The museum is open from May through October.
