History: The first Tri-State Steam Engine Show was held in 1949. The show was started by men who owned and had operated threshing rigs. Some purchased antique steam engines and other fuel burning tractors. The purpose of the show was to share the experience of operated threshing rigs with others. Early shows were held on the Roy Kite farm. In 1957, a corporation was formed. They purchased land and built several buildings to house the exhibits. The show grew as it expanded to include exhibits from other areas of early Cheyenne County history. Today there are 14 buildings, each used for a special display. You are invited to attend this annual event and to tour the museum buildings and watch the parade of old machinery and harvest equipment.
