WHO WE ARE and OUR MISSION
In today's world of fast technologies, fake fun and video "non-reality"
.. its hard to build roots and the basics needed with your kids
unless they can have a "fun" hands on experience.
This exhibit has been designed to spark the interest of the
visitor as well as educate him or her on just how exciting and
creative people had to be to survive without TV and cell phones.
Take a tour and bring your kids for a great day or night of realreality!
This is a 501 C-3 non-profit organization designed to pass on the
excitement and fun of our past.
COME and experience the true history of our mechanized growth in agriculture, logging, mining and transportation of the lower Snohomish,
Snoqualmie and Skykomish valleys.

county-owned land upon which he could build a much
*Update: Snohomish County did
designate the land for a museum, and now Senner has
begun trying to raise about $900,000 for the
construction of a new museum, which could house one of
the largest collections of antique farm equipment on the
West Coast, if he succeeds. In a meeting last Thursday,
Senner and county officials discussed locating the space
for a new museum somewhat closer to the current museum
than the land Senner originally had in mind. Senner
plans to build the new museum in $300,000 phases."

project. Our proposed building will be an expansive 30,000 square
feet. 15,000 on two floors.

building, we are in discussions build a 30,000 square foot double decked
facility on a separate property that can
house our current artifacts as well as the new

This exhibit was
originally the life long dream of a great guy named Jerry Senner.
His collection process started many years ago. He has spent his life
assembling these classic tractors, implements and specialized
equipment for display. His passion for passing on some of the fun and
