Showcasing America’s Heritage and Ingenuity
The Richard W. Erickson Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which was established in 1999 with a vision to preserve early American history in a way that would provide an educational and recreational experience for the community. Our Antique & Classic Power Museum houses one of the largest and most unique collections of antique and classic automobiles, motorcycles, farm implements, steam and gas tractors as well as Americana memorabilia. Our pioneer village includes an array of old buildings; a shoe shop, print shop, church and Wallsburg’s first mercantile established in 1890.
Plan your visit during our annual Antique Power Show the weekend after Father’s Day each year or during one of our crowd-pleasing music festivals. We do private tours by appointment, reach out via email to schedule: [email protected]. This museum is a hidden gem and earns five stars as a premier Utah family activity.
Richard W. Erickson
Richard W. Erickson’s passion for collecting and preserving history is the foundation upon which the Richard W. Erickson Foundation is built. Richard’s children, Pam and Todd, and the Foundation’s Board of Trustees have taken that passion to another level, collecting, preserving, and sharing the collection with the public. The Richard W. Erickson Foundation is committed to expanding opportunities and events so more people can enjoy this amazing piece of American history.
The Museum & Collection
For more than 50 years, Richard and Rita Erickson collected everything from Harley-Davidson’s and gas pumps to old toasters and ladies’ fashions. Their weekends and free time were devoted to building the collection.
