Schurman Steamup

Clyde and Millie Schurman


Clyde and Millie Schurman lived next to their Machine Shop on Lewis River Road (503) at Woodland, Washington. Over the years Clyde collected thousands of things including cars, steam engines, tractors, tractor seats, farm equipment and on and on. He even bought a steam locomotive and had a short track for it to run on in their back yard. Click here for more info and pictures.






Schurman Steamup

Schurman Steam-Up


Members of the Woodland Historical Museum Society were invited to the Schurman Steam-up on October 7, 2006. This is an event at which several friends and relatives of Clyde Schurmen got together at his place and steamed up the locomotive and other steam engines. It was great fun and we learned a lot. Nancy was even able to run the locomotive. What a thrill. Click here for more pictures.
