Third Annual Delaware Agricultural Museum Show

| December/January 1986

On Saturday, September 27, the Delaware Agricultural Museum hosted its third annual Gas Engine Show and Antique Fair.

The museum was founded in 1974 by a group associated with agriculture and dedicated to preserving Delaware's agricultural heritage. It is located on Route 13, just north of Dover, the state capital.

Soon a corn house built between 1825 and 1850 will be moved to the grounds thanks to a state grant.

The organization's aim is to share an understanding of the region's agricultural past. The museum opened to the public in August 1980.

Among permanent exhibits on the museum's grounds are a water-powered mill, blacksmith shop, farm house, granary and barn. The main exhibit building houses numerous displays of farming equipment including two steam traction engines and about a dozen tractors.

The museum is open all year except January to March, Tuesday through Saturday 10-4; from July to September it is also open Sundays 1 to 4; admission is charged.
