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.
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.
