Join us every month for the next year as we take a close look at a special item in our collection and then zoom out for a larger discussion with experts and enthusiasts. Our collection goes beyond Stanley steam cars, so tune in every month to see what interesting items we uncover!

Upcoming Programs: 

  • Behind the Steam: Golden Age of Radio, February 18 at 7 pm 
    • We will be taking a close look at our Westinghouse Radio and its connection to bringing radio into the mainstream. We’ll be joined by Donna Acerra, Professor of Communication at Northampton Community College. She was recently co-curator of “Don’t Touch that Dial: 100 Years of Radio” with the National Museum of Industrial History in Bethlehem, PA. Donna will use our radio as a jumping off to point to discuss the beginning of the “Golden Age of Radio.”
  • Behind the Steam: Mountain Wagons, March 18 at 7 pm
    • Did you know that the Stanley Motor Carriage Company produced a steam-powered bus in 1909? Join the Marshall Steam Museum for a joint talk with Laura Giner, Program Director at the Collection on Palmetto as we compare our own Mountain Wagon wonders!
  • Stay tuned for more events! This program runs the whole year and new topics will be released for the next three months in early 2021.
