In 1955, several local men living in Carroll and Northern Baltimore Counties in Maryland got together and decided to have a steam show. With that show, the Maryland Steam Historical Society began an annual tradition of showing vintage farm machinery and antique equipment. The show is held in the middle of September, usually the third weekend, Thursday through Sunday in Arcadia (Upperco), Maryland.

There are always plenty of steam engines fired up and on display, including the Buffalo Springfield roller owned by the club. This engine has been undergoing repairs through the winter months.

We also have a building that houses our stationary engine display. There are always gas engines on top of gas engines on the upper grounds and tractors everywhere! There is an antique tractor pull, garden tractor pull and a kid's pedal pull. Antique cars and the steam engines and tractors can participate in parades. There are always lots of good things up for grabs at the consignment sale.

There is a wide variety of flea market vendors and plenty of delicious food, too.



There is country music entertainment each evening, and a church service on Sunday morning.

To commemorate the last 45 years, a special booklet is being published. It will feature photographs of past years, biographies, and history.
