Country Relics Little Village & Homestead near Stanhope, Iowa, will host its 4th annual All-Scaled Model Machinery Show on June 24, 1995.

The 1994 show held in August was termed a success by all those who participated. Exhibitors from across the state and over the borders brought their working, handcrafted, model steam and gas engines, tractors and machinery. The 1994 show grew in positive ways with several crafters marketing their handiwork, and Eugene Pippin of Marshalltown demonstrating the art of blacksmithing.

Visitors from England, Brazil, Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Minnesota, Mississippi and Nebraska as well as throughout Iowa enjoyed the 3rd annual All-Scaled Model Machinery Show at Country Relics.

In 1995, the show will be expanded to include miniature horse enthusiasts, too. If you have scaled model working engines, tractors, or machinery and would like to share your treasures with others, please plan now to join Country Relics on Saturday, June 24 for a unique day of fun. All exhibitors welcome.

Country Relics Little Village and Homestead is a scaled model village ( to 2/3 scale) detailed with authentic children's furnishings, salesmen's samples and toys from the 1920s and '30s. Designated as Iowa's '1991 Tourism
