Badger Steam and Gas Engine Club's Home, Sweet Home
The new home of the Badger Steam and Gas Engine Club sits on 80 acres and has 10 new buildings
The office and bookstore are at the heart of the show. A flagpole donated by the family of former member Perry Ramsey stands just outside the office. Ten buildings were erected at the site in the past 15 months.

Sharon Hill, Madison, Wis., brought her Sandley Steam Wagon to the show.
The International Cockshutt Club held its gathering during the Badger show. Next year's show will feature International Harvester.
