The Pioneer Steam And Gas Engine Society's Twenty-First Annual Show

| March/April 1989

The Pioneer Steam and Gas Engine Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania, Inc. 1988 Show was a real success. The show was held, for the first time, on their new show grounds at Coon's Corners, near Saegertown, Pennsylvania.

The show grounds, purchased in January 1988, consists of sixty acres of gently sloped land, partially wooded, and bordering on Interstate 79.

Many hours were spent, throughout last winter, by several of the society's officers and directors, in finding and purchasing this superb site.

It was only in April that it was decided to hold this year's show at the new site. Previous shows have been held at the Crawford County Fairgrounds near Meadville, Pennsylvania.

A tremendous amount of work was accomplished between April and the show dates of July 15,16 and 17, including putting in two driveway entrances and a gravel road of about 800 feet long, drilling a water well, clearing brush and general cleanup, building a loading dock, and setting up a house trailer as an office. Much required material was donated.
