MADRID -- The St. Lawrence Power & Equipment Museum received a $5,000 donation from SeaComm Federal Credit Union to help with building the Museumís Antique Tractor Building. Directed by Museum Vice-President Reginald Chester, Museum members have been putting finishing touches on its exterior. Purchase of exterior overhead doors made possible by the gift will assure a snug winter for the new building. Further work remains on the buildingís interior, which will have three sections. A front show room will feature restored tractors as they might have been exhibited more than 50 years ago. There will also be a fully equipped and winterized maintenance and restoration shop that will also have instruction for members and others. The balance of the facility will provide needed space for the Museumís antique tractor collection. The new building will bring Museum areas under cover to nearly 30,000 square feet.

The Museumís mission is to preserve and share the knowledge of the inventions and new technologies that have supported and improved the lives of people living in the North Country of New York.
