Showcasing America’s Heritage and Ingenuity
The Richard W. Erickson Foundation is an Antique Power Museum, a place where one can reminisce about their past. An educational experience for the whole family. Hundreds of tractors, vintage automobiles, motorcycles and much more. Take a stroll through our pioneer village, visit the blacksmith, maybe ride the train or just sit back and enjoy the music. Plan your visit during our annual Antique Power Show or during one of special events.
Richard W. Erickson
The Richard W. Erickson foundation was built on the dream and hard work of Richard W. Erickson and his family. They devoted their lives to collecting treasures from the past and building a property to educate those who were interested in how people used to live. Their spirit of pioneering is respected and honored by the museum’s pioneer village which houses an impressive collection.
The Museum & Collection
For more than 50 years, the Erickson’s collected everything from Harley-Davidson’s and gas pumps to old toasters and ladies’ fashion time. Their weekends and free time were devoted to building up the shop. This museum and collection was their whole life, nothing else really mattered and to this day, his family still sticks with it.
