In the 1970s, Tom Marshall opened the property to the public under the name “The Magic Age of Steam.” He founded the “Steam Team” in 1997 to pass along his knowledge and experience operating and maintaining the steam vehicles. The “Steam Team” evolved to become the Friends of Auburn Heights (FAH), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Today, FAH operates Marshall Steam Museum and serves as the steward of the historic automobiles, Auburn Valley Railroad, and other collections on the Auburn Heights estate.
Your contributions and support help FAH accomplish its mission to share the impact of steam technology and life at the dawn of the automotive age.
