The U.P. Steam and Gas Engine Association is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation, restoration and exhibition of vintage steam-powered engines, gasoline-powered hit-and-miss engines, tractors, farm machinery, and other items of historical interest.
We believe that these implements are as much a part of the American story as the hardy men and women who used them in forging this great nation.
It is lamentable that the unending march of time, coupled with the ravages of the elements and simple ignorance, has all but destroyed much of this machinery.
It is our ongoing resolve to maintain this equipment for historical and educational purposes and as a legacy for present and future generations.
To that end, the Association provides opportunities for members and for the general public to meet for the exhibition and operation of steam and combustion-powered equipment and to gain an appreciation for American heritage.
