"Antique Acres"

Location:

Cedar Falls
4.5 miles north on U.S. Hwy 218

Antique Acres is a private organization whose members own, preserve and display working examples of antique threshing, steam, plowing and saw milling machinery. Antique Acres was incorporated in 1964 to purchase 80 acres of land and to organize what has become an annual "Old Time Power Show," held each August on this site.

The Antique Acres collection includes a 140-horsepower Reeves steam plow (one of the largest traction engines ever built), a 1916 Townsend tractor, a 1918 Moline Universal tractor, a 400-horsepower Murrey Corliss steam engine and a four-horsepower Litchfield six-cycle gasoline engine, built in Waterloo. A museum on the grounds features a large collection of old farm machinery, including items more than 100 years old.

For more information about Antique Acres or the Old Time Power Show, call 987-2380.
