 Welcome to Branch 15

Branch 15 of the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association, a non-profit organization, was established at Powerland Heritage Park in Brooks, Oregon for people interested in the preservation and history of farm, industrial, machinery and artifacts.

In 2007, Branch 15 acquired a rare piece of Oregon’s history, the contents of the Wolf Iron Works manufacturing line shaft shop located in Portland, Oregon which built drag saws for the timber industry. All of the equipment and machinery remained intact with all the tooling and machinery used to build the gas engines and drag saws from raw castings to finished product.

Swap Meet June 26-27, 2020 -- Cancelled

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 crisis and Oregon’s current restrictions on large gatherings and events, we are following the guidelines from the State and the CDC and the decision was made to cancel all events at Powerland Heritage Park through September 30, 2020. If you paid your pre-registration, you will be contacted.

 Wolf Iron Works Educational Museum

In 2010, construction began on an authentic reproduction of an early 1900's industrial living museum building to house the Wolf Iron Works line shaft powered production shop. The original line shaft has been reassembled and connected to various machines (i.e., metal turning lathes, grinder, drill press, etc.) to as close as is operationally possible and visitors can see operating equipment and machinery dating to the 19th century. We just received a Certificate of Occupancy from Marion County, so the Museum will be open to the public whenever there is a special event at Powerland Heritage Park.
