Harrisburg, PA

We went to Harrisburg to do some genealogical research into Susan's family. We visited a large cemetery searching for the burial site for one of her relatives. While we didn't find the one we were looking for, we did find some other Facklers (Susan's family name) and even some Cooks (my mother's family).

After returning to our campsite, I noticed that the gate to the Museum of Antique Machinery had been opened for a blacksmith class so I went in and watched them work - notice the hot fire on a collapsible wooden bench - look safe to you? Then I went to look at some of the old steam-powered equipment (like this 1908 Avery tractor) on display. Pretty cool stuff.
