Antique Steam Engine Demonstration
Saturday, Dec 3, 2016
2 PM to 4 PM
Come “let off some steam” by blowing the whistle atop the Jarrell Plantation ‘Mill Complex’, a signal used to communicate between Jarrell’s manning different work positions throughout the mill. See our stationary steam engine in action and experience live steam that puts into motion this important provider of mechanical energy in America's past.
See Jarrell Plantation’s original steam engine operated on live steam. Originally belt driving several plantation equipment pieces, the engines date to 1895 and have served here ever since, in revenue service and demonstrations throughout the plantations operation phases. A 12 horsepower version built in 1895 by a local historic ironworks in nearby Macon served small ‘portable’ equipment and, the 30 horsepower is a Talbot steam engine manufactured in Richmond Virginia in or prior to 1916.
