Antique Powerland is one of the Portland Area’s real hidden gems. Even though it’s been around since the 1970′s, I didn’t find out about it until two or three years ago. Located just north of Salem, conveniently off of I-5 in Brooks, Oregon, this 63 Acre attraction is actually 15 separate museums!
It seems that there is a impromptu parade of antique steam tractors around the museum grounds every hour.
Many of these old Russell Tractors barely look like they’ll move, much less do any work. Yet here they are parading around and showing off.
Other museums that share the grounds are:
among many others. On Steam Up weekends, there is also a swap meet going on. Most of the items are of interest to others who are looking to restore their own vehicles, but there is still quite a collection of interesting items to buy.
