Porter Engine Gets a New Home

September 11 was a big morning for the Museum, with the move of the Porter Engine from the west side to the front of our building. We’re tickled to have it out front to showcase such a great piece of Salida History. This little guy (or “goat” as it was called) was used at the Koppers creosote plant located at the old smelter.

Check out the video if you want to see the whole process. Very impressive given the size of this engine!
