Show Time at Antique Powerland 'Celebrating 100 Years of Machines'


| July/August 2000


525 Sunrise Place, NW, Sublimity, Oregon 97385

It was March of 1998 that adherents at the Antique Powerland Museum, located near Salem, Oregon, decided that a new century provided a 'once in a lifetime' chance to hold a special heritage celebration. The legacy of power machines dates back to the 18th Century with the introduction of steam motivation followed by the internal combustion engine. Innovation led to the introduction of apparatus and implements for harnessing that power to assist with such daily tasks as farming, logging, fabrication and manufacturing.

Antique Powerland is all about those early machines and implements, their design, history and use, and the people behind them. These collections provide the ready-made opportunity for 'Celebrating 100 Years of Machines,' the theme of this year's 30th edition of The Great Oregon Steam-Up. The Steam-Up will take place the two weekends of July 29th, 30th and August 5th, 6th.

Fourteen different heritage restoration and preservation groups function at Powerland, each dedicated to different categories of machines. Represented are steam, early gas engines, tractors, crawlers, farm implements, construction, logging and sawing, blacksmithing, flour milling, trucks, rail and trolleys represented and demonstrated both full size and in model exhibits.



The show is held at the 63 acre Powerland heritage site with free parking being provided. Demonstrations include: threshing, baling, plowing (both tractors and horses), blacksmithing, logging and steam-driven sawmilling, wheelwright fabrication, antique engine and tractor operation, steam traction engines and stationary engine operations, spinning and weaving fire service apparatus demonstrations, culminating in a daily giant parade!

Saturday, July 29th will be Caterpillar Day. The Caterpillar Company, an American institution, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.
