  • This place is a must see. My husband and our two children went recently. There are no words to express our experience except, WOW!. if you love museums and stories about how these exquisite items were found and restored, you will love it! The collection of items we saw there are of the caliber of those found in large public museums. Mr. Bennett has a passion for historic mechanical treasures, his stories of how they found the pieces and restored them made the visit even more memorable! Thank you Mr Bennett, for the pure love of what you do!
  • Loved seeing all the old cars and memorabilia
  • We stopped in on a whim, and were lucky enough to join in a tour with another couple that had called ahead. Fabulous tour, we had a great time! Mr. Bennett has such a passion for historic mechanical treasures and his tour was very informative. Be sure to bring some cash, as his wife makes and sells hand cranked socks and other nifty crafts. Thank you for the awesome afternoon!
  • Really a hidden gem. If you like steam powered cars and early music players this is a great place. Owner is a treasure of great stories and he will play the machines for you
  • When you pull up the drive you might think to yourself "how long could I spend in this barn?" But you'll be surprised! The antique and vintage equipment and period pieces are impressive the way they've been immaculately restored, and most are in working condition, but what really sets this place apart from other attractions is the passion and generosity of the owner, Mr. Bennett. His contagious energy and enthusiasm will draw you in as he explains the restoration process and historic significance of each piece in his collection. Gearheads, historians or anyone with a curious mind will love absorbing the rich stories that this place has to offer. They also sell candies and preserves, so be sure to bring cash!
