The Soule Steam Works look like the worker just left for holiday. Knowledgeable tour guide who actually worked on the equipment on display. We will be sure to return for Steam Fest the first weekend in November.

Interesting place to visit. It showcases an old steam factory. You should have good shoes when touring. The first weekend in November is an annual festival.
