The East Tennessee Antique Engine Association held their 1991 show on June 7-9 at Jeff Hutchings' farm near Johnson City/Elizabethton on Scioto Road at the edge of the Cherokee National Forest. There were over 350 engines displayed, with over 30 of them of the side-shaft variety.

This year's show will be the 20th annual event that Jeff  Hutchings and the East Tennessee Antique Engine Association have hosted. An 1882 Otto slide valve engine can be found running at various times on hydrogen along with several steam engines, a dozen or more natural gas fueled engines, and even an operating hot-air engine. Since several tractors participated in last years event, a couple of tractor parades were scheduled for this year's show. The 30 HP Bessemer's restoration has been completed and will be displayed along with many rare and unique engines such as the Hughes' freshly restored 25 HP Superior side-shaft.
