George Fizer, engineer, stands beside a 6 HP L. Spence portable steam engine on August 8, 1993. The engine, owned by Keith Mason of Clarksburg, West Virginia, was discovered by Keith and his late father, Kenny Mason, in an abandoned building outside Clarksburg's city limits in 1964. Restoration began in 1967 and was done nearly a year later with 763 man-hours involved in its completion. The engine was built in 1883 by the Ohio Valley Agriculture Works of Martins Ferry, Ohio. It is currently the oldest steam boiler under state certification in the state of West Virginia. (110 years old, 1883-1993).
