North Woodstock, New Hampshire, home of Clark's Trading Post is a place everyone would enjoy. They are dedicated to the preservation of early Americana, with a heavy concentration on steam.

The following is representative of their many items related to steam: Two truck Shay, 1920 Climax, 27 ton Heisler, 04-0 Porter Switcher, 0-4-0 Switcher from the Lincoln Paper Company, Huber steam tractor, three steam rollers, two steam pumper fire trucks, steam shovels and many small items such as Stanley steamer engines.

For a moderate admission fee, you may spend the better portion of an enjoyable day reminiscing in a quaint, unique museum of early cameras, record players, radios, New Hampshire souvenir plates, moxie items and many other objects of early Americana.



By Spring, another museum will open. This will house steam fire engines bringing back an era of nostalgia for many people.

The Clark Brothers, Edward and Murray, will entertain you with one of the most pleasant examples of training animals through kindness, with the performance of four of New Hampshire's native black bears.
