'Letting off Steam' at Marshall Steam Museum

Jul 20, 2016 01:28PM ● Published by J. Chambless

From the 1890s through the 1920s, people experimented with a new engineering marvel: The automobile. While the skeptics waited for the fad to pass and the world to return to the civilized ways of the horse and carriage, others looked to a future spent traveling on four wheels.
A new exhibit at the Marshall Steam Museum at Auburn Heights Preserve will explore the history of the Stanley Motor Carriage Company and the connection between that company and Auburn Heights. There will be a special preview on Aug. 2 at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
In addition to exploring the exhibit, visitors may also enjoy:
Cash bar, pizza, popcorn, and other refreshments available for purchase
Special "Making of the Exhibit" slideshow
Chance Raffle: Choose from an Invitational Package and a Kitchen Package: $1/ticket. Benefits the Joseph Boxler Education Fund.
This special Evening at the Museum will be free to the public. During this free open house, there will be no car or train rides, electric trains, or family activities in the museum.
The Marshall Steam Museum is at 3000 Creek Road (Route 82) in Yorklyn, Del. Call 302-239-2385 or visit www.auburnheights.org.
