For as long as I can remember, I have been attending the annual Yankee Steam-Up event held at The New England Wireless and Steam Museum in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. Here, you will find exhibits of working steam engines (several with flywheels larger than 10 feet in diameter) dating back to the mid 1800’s and early 1900’s. These engines were the driving force behind the industrial revolution and allowed factories to be built away from the banks of rivers since they were no longer dependent on water wheels to generate power. One of the major manufacturers of steam engines, the Corliss Steam Engine Company, founded by George H. Corliss, was located nearby in Providence, Rhode Island. The museum displays what is believed to be the only Corliss steam engine which still operates under steam power today.
