Antique Association receives Grant for Preservation of Steam Powered Woodworking Equipment

Plagman red shop picture_2_2-003Northeast Iowa Farm and Antique Association (Plagman Barn) located near Garber , Iowa, is dedicated to the preservation of our rural farming heritage and the tools used in the pioneer days of agriculture.

The Association has received a grant from the Upper Mississippi Gaming Corporation to construct a 20’X 48’ enclosed building which will house a steam engine used at the Guttenberg Canning Factory, and display steam powered woodworking equipment in action. The building has observation windows to allow the public to view the antique woodworking equipment being operated. The building will also allow people to see the steam engine as it existed in the factory setting.

The building will be on display during Show Days, which runs the third full weekend in September each year at the Plagman Barn grounds. The Association plans on restoring each piece of equipment and hooking it to an old time line shaft, which will power the equipment for demonstrations. We invite you to attend our Show Days and witness history come alive.

The Plagman Barn is extremely grateful to the Upper Mississippi Gaming Corporation and their generosity in awarding this grant that will preserve this part of history.

For more information on the building and equipment, contact DeVere Clinton at 563-245-2317
