Hampstead , Md. 21074

From: Mason-Dixon Historical Society

An announcement was made this week of an arrangement whereby future shows starting in September 1967 of the Mason-Dixon Steam Historical Society will be held at the Carroll County Farm Museum. The announcement was made by Elmer P. Pfoutz, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Farm Musuem and Stewart E. Leiphart of the Steam Society.

Mr. Leiphart stated that previous yearly shows have been held at the Leppo Farm in Greenmount and that the 1967 event would be at the Farm on September 7, 8, 9, and 10. He noted that the Steam Show should also be a drawing card for the Farm Museum which is planned to reopen its doors on April 15.

Plans call for the Steam Society after the current year to hold both a spring and a fall show. The Museum is permitting the Society to construct a building in the Museum complex to house equipment that members of the Society desire to leave at the Farm Museum for display purposes and use during regular craft days.

The Board of Governors of the Farm Museum had been indeed fortunate to add another historical aspect to its already popular program according to Chairman Pfoutz. We welcome the members of the Mason-Dixon Society and hope that we have many years of pleasant association, he added.
