A formerly fully functioning machine belt driven machine shop. Very interesting history of the site is shared via outside signage. Inside you will be met with the smells of a machine shop that is suspended in time, just as it was when the owner died....More

A great example of a very old machine shop. All the original equipment is there, and is still runnable. It's all run by belts. The staff were friendly, had good historical knowledge, and we're open to questions and discussions.
