Marshall Steam Museum

We recently went on an adventure to the Marshall Steam Museum.  The Marshall Steam Museum at Auburn Heights Preserve offered us a chance to step back in time and experience life at the dawn of the automotive age.  The structure was built in 1947 to house T. Clarence Marshall’s growing collecting of antique automobiles – we were captivated by these vehicles.  This is the world’s largest operating collection of Stanley steam cars, a 1916 electric car and two 1930’s Packard’s.  Additionally, they also are home to the Auburn Valley Railroad that has one of its coal-fired trains that will circle the property.  We were all fascinated by the history behind the cars, how far cars have advanced through time and the history behind the Marshall family.  This stimulating, entertaining and educational outing was the perfect excursion, especially since several who attended have a passion for cars.  We are already looking forward to many more adventures that are in store for us!
