Miniatureland Expands

| June/July 1990

317 W. Locust St. Peter, Minnesota 56082

In 1987 I first wrote an article that told you about our Miniatureland building which was 16' x 20'. We have since outgrown our space several times, and will soon undergo our third expansion. In cooperation with LeSueur County Pioneer Power Association members and directors, Miniatureland will be housed under a new 42' x 60' steel building, The new Miniatureland will include additional display areas, inside and out, for model steam and gas engines, trains and other models and miniature items.

In the past years, Miniatureland has seen many fine collections. Of the exhibitors that displayed their models and collections, there were one hundred fifty working model gas engines, forty operating model steam engines, eighteen hot air engines, one live steam locomotive and twenty five miniature machinery items. Forty five model

builders and collectors from Minnesota and surrounding states of Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska and as far away as California, Idaho, Kansas, Illinois and Maryland have been the key to making the 1989 Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Show, Miniatureland a success. 1990 should provide our annual show with new attractions and exciting exhibits to see. Thanks to all the spectators and exhibitors who made the 1989 show the best ever. We invite old friends and new to our 1990 Pioneer Power Show August 24-26.
