Steam Engine Building

The Steam Engine Building at Farmtown Park houses numerous engines and artifacts including a vast display of chain saws. There is a huge 100 year old Robert Bell steam engine, which was built in 1909 in Seaforth in western Ontario by the Robert Bell Steam Engine and Threshing Company and shipped to Stirling by train. The Stapley family, who lived just east of Stirling, used the steam engine to power thrashing machines, which harvested grain. They took the engine from farm to farm at harvest time.
