Kent is a lovely town and this event was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful and feature such a large collection of antique tractors, cars, and bikes. There's an awesome museum of gems and mining history as well.

The people that maintain the museum should be applauded. What a wonderful look back at the machinery that built America. On swap meet weekend when all the machinery is running there is much to see and learn. Plus the property itself is very nice.

Many buildings display an overwhelming amount of items ranging from steam engines, combustion engines, agriculture equipment, an old school house, mining museum, blacksmith shop, and steam trains. Volunteers were very friendly and informative.

This is a delightful place for a Saturday or Sunday afternoon visit. Steam engines of all sizes and the Mining Museum shows all of the minerals and rocks mined in CT - way beyond what I would have thought.

Great place for a family trip. A lot of walking, bumping your head and slipping... But it was cool. The staff were really informative as well.
