The Northern Indiana Historical Power Association's 15th annual show was held September 13-15, 1991 at Sunset Hill Farm Park.

Sunset Hill Farm Park is a Porter County, Indiana park, still in the early stages of development. Location is five miles north of Valparaiso, Indiana; one mile west of IN-49, at US 6 & Meridian Road. This was the third year that N.I.H.P.A. held their show at the farm.

Bill Remus and his team of Belgians were among the teams of draft horses that joined in the weekend of activities. Threshing with steam, sorghum making and plowing were just a few of the farm activities demonstrated during the show.

After a dry summer here in northwest Indiana, even the rain couldn't stop the weekend of entertainment. Local musicians provided a relaxing evening for exhibitors and visitors.

Plans are underway for the Northern Indiana Historical Power Association 1992 show to be held over the weekend of September 18, 19, 20. Tractors and other equipment of the John Deere Company will be one of the features at the show.
