Summer Fun Run 2009
Tenatively 18 July 2009

Plans for SFR2009 have been in the works, but have been facing difficulties with officer schedules.  Initial date selected was 18 July, but issues & concerns with family vacations & weddings are becoming issues as we hear from more DMA members. 
We are checking on potential dates in the second half of August to allow more members to attend as well as allow more time for planning purposes.

The Mercer Museum is a history museum of everyday life in America during the 18th and 19th centuries. Henry Mercer (1856-1930) gathered the collection and constructed the Museum.  The collection of some 40,000 objects documents the lives and tasks of early Americans through the tools that met their needs and wants prior to the Industrial Revolution, or about 1850. Visitors can choose their own paths through the Museum. Most of the 55 exhibit rooms and alcoves display the tools or products of an early American craft, trade or occupation. Other rooms show categories of objects such as lighting devices or architectural hardware.

Take a step back in time to a simpler age!  Come and experience the turn of the twentieth century through the magic of steam locomotion here at the beautiful Auburn Heights Preserve!  Enjoy a stroll, or sit under the spreading limbs of the mighty oaks and poplars, which surround our estate grounds.  
 
Hop aboard the "First Bus" in Delaware -- A Stanley Mountain Wagon -- for a spin around the property in our fully restored 1915 Model 820 Mountain Wagon.  Or if you'd rather ride the train than the bus.... step over to the station and board our 1/8 size live steam railway for a round trip on The Auburn Valley Railroad!   The Auburn Valley boasts two mighty 4-8-4 'Northern' coal fired, live steam locomotives to speed you on your journey.
 
And when you get back to the station you won't want to miss seeing the largest collection of Stanley Steamers you're ever likely to see! We have over a dozen Steamers -- All fully restored and in roadworthy condition.  Don't miss them!
