Last Steamin' event for 2017 sees hundreds of visitors on crisp autumn day

The Preserve at Auburn Heights and Marshall Steam Museum held its final big event for 2017 – “Steamin’ Thanksgiving” – on Saturday, Nov. 26 at their grounds in Yorklyn.

The November Steamin’ Day event features rides in authentic steam powered cars and trains, steam-fresh popcorn, and tours of the Marshall Mansion.

The preserve’s next big event in their annual springtime Easter Egg hunt, which sells out quickly every year.

The 200-plus acre site once belonged to the Marshall family, turn-of-the-century industrialists who owned and operated the Marshall Brothers Paper Mill in Yorklyn until it was sold in the 1950s.

In addition to the steam museum, steam operated scale trains, and the Marshall Mansion, there are a network of hiking trails connecting the preserve to other Yorklyn locations, such as Dew Point Brewing, and the Center for the Creative Arts.

Mansion tours are always available by appointment.
