St. Lawrence Power And Equipment Museum - Part 1

I'd been hearing and reading about the Power Equipment Museum in the town of Madrid but learned that it is only open the 2nd and 4th Saturdays, June through October. So I picked a Saturday, drove to Madrid, parked my car and headed for this big, modern barn:

Old time equipment was parked outside, around the doors to the barn. This, I think, was a corn planter:

And a fire department pumper:

Inside, there were so many machines, wagons, etc. that it was hard to know where to begin. This was labelled as a shucker - for corn, I assume:

Antique harrows. Please leave a comment if I misidentify something:

OK, I didn't see any sign and I can't even take a guess at what this was:

An old buckboard:

An oil tanker:

Antique buggies:

And sleighs for winter. This is, after all, real snow country:

A manure spreader:

A more modern manure spreader. These were only a few of the many exhibits in the first barn and there was much more to see, so I left the building and continued my walking tour. I'll post Part 2 tomorrow:
