The Museum is housed in the Erstwhile Stanley School, named after the Stanleys in 1905 — it is the Museum’s primary artifact! The exhibits cover all facets of the Stanley family history and memorabilia — airbrush painting and photography, violins, and examples of Stanley steam cars from 1905, 1910, and 1916.
Visitors to the Stanley Museum are greeted and directed first to the car room exhibiting the steam cars, and a 20-hp Stanley engine, boiler, and burner exhibit that demonstrates the power plant of the Stanley steam car. There is also a chain-driven Mason Regulator engine on exhibit, an engine used in the first Stanley cars and reportedly the original Whitney steam engine that started it all in the 1890s.
