Antique Acres Campgrounds


category : Museums
Antique Acres, Founded in 1964, Antique Acres is best known for its yearly Old Time Power Show in August, which is dedicated to the preservation and operation of antique machinery. Here you will find exhibitors displaying collections of farming equipment of all kinds, jelly being made on an old fashioned wood stove, or butter being churned. A "Parade of Power" from antique garden tractors to powerful steam engines, which put on a beautiful light show after dark, is only one of the 3-day show events. A museum at the Acres houses many old time and valuable pieces which can also be viewed during one of the many tours conducted for out-of-town groups, schools or just someone stopping by. A campground with shelter and stage are also available as well as an air-conditioned hall with kitchen facilities to meet your needs.
