Moore & Muir Engine Works

Lloyd Moore Steam EngineWork on the farm doesn’t get done without power, be it man, horse or machine! Celebrate with us the engine power of the early 20th Century. Some of the stars of the museum collection are now on display at the Moore & Muir Engine Works! Come and see our two steam traction engines, a Robert Bell, 1921 (22hp) and Geo. White & Sons, 1923 (25hp); one of the first farm tractors a Hart Parr built in 1922; and a number of gasoline/kerosene stationary engines. Check out some steam engine models and investigate the evolution of steam power. Fill your power craving at Grey Roots.

Off-Site Steam Traction Engine Exhibition Policy
In a day when fewer and fewer of these machines are being maintained for public presentation purposes, the steam traction engine is in high demand for special exhibitions, parades and fall fairs because of its large size, rarity and historical connection to the County. The steam traction engine is displayed and occasionally demonstrated at Grey Roots. It will power the Herb Miller Sawmill in Moreston Heritage Village beginning in 2016. The steam traction engine is also made available for a limited schedule of demonstrations at off-site events within Grey County. Grey Roots is committed to offering a variety of exhibits to the public. Linking the communities of Grey County to its heritage is the mandate of Grey Roots.
