We’ve found the perfect home to hold our Open House/Woodworking Show. Not only does the Rough and Tumble Historical Association offer us more space than ever, but it is one of the most interesting and exciting places to visit when in full swing. Along with our own classes and exhibits, you’ll be able to see everything that Rough and Tumble has offered for 68 years!  

The rumbling is the first thing you notice. Tractors, big engines, and antique cars are all fired up, their deep growls punctuated by blasts from a locomotive’s steam whistle. The air smells like a tantalizing mixture of fuel, steam, cut wood, and sugar. There are people and machines everywhere you look.
