“STEAM: Harnessing the Power of Water” with Peter Cash

May 4 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm CDT

For centuries, man has harnessed the power of water to grind grain, saw timber, forge metal, and do many other things faster and better than human power alone.  In this program, led by Peter Cash, participants will explore the development and uses of steam power on the rivers, the rails, in agriculture, and in industry.

This program is in support of the Tennessee Waters exhibits, on display at Johnsonville State Historic Park from April 18-June 1, 2019. Visit the park’s website for more details.
