Capturing the spirit of centuries past, the public will again be offered the experience of celebrating a by-gone era at the August 4, 5, and 6, 2011 Holmes County Ohio Steam and Engine Association's 19th Annual Summer Show, taking place at the Mt. Hope, Ohio auction barn property.
With over 400 members, the Holmes County Steam and Engine Association is dedicated to the preservation of antique farm equipment as well as teaching early farming methods to younger generations. Young and old are captured by the chug-chug of these early "work horses" that preceded the gas combustion engine. The gasoline engine was introduced from the mid 1800's to the early 1900's.
Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast, located only seven miles from Mt. Hope, have found this show to offer an exceptional experience for family, friends, and guests.
