Shown are some views of the old Abenaque engine plant that was built in Wesminster Station, Vermont in 1883. The engines were made at the rate of one per day-not bad for a small town of 700-800 population.

At that time Vermont was noted for more cattle than people.

The engines were made in 3, 4, 5, 7 and 15 horsepower and later Abenaque Machine Company built air compressors.

This company was in Vermont and manufactured close to 5000 engines and later some tractors. Some of the engines were exported to Europe.

In 1915 Abenaque suffered great financial loss. The company later reorganized and ran a plant for about five years in Marlborough, New Hampshire. They had a central office at 7 Milk Street, Boston, Massachusetts.
