  Monument to a bygone era

Favorite thing: Glen Innes, like most of the reasonably sized towns in the New England area, has a museum. This particular one is called History House, a rather simple but definitely to-the-point name.
One thing many of them have is room, lots of it; so invariably they have space to store items such as you see here.
The prominent wheel is an "Albion" horizontal steam engine which came from London & Colonial in 1886 and was used to power a local sawmill up until the 1960's whilst on the left is a winch that was used in the same mill but originally was a ship's winch.

Fondest memory: The museum is open in winter from 10-12 and 1-4 weekdays and 1-4 on weekends. Summer hours are the same for the morning session but 2-5 in the afternoons.
