The Howard Iron Works museum showcases man’s greatest accomplishments.
The current collection features an impressive selection of iron presses, cylinders, platens and bindery equipment. In addition, their library also features a collection of vintage printing-related books, technical and trade journals. This museum has printing machinery from many periods dating from the 1830’s to the 1950’s. This was the era of profound change for society. As the ever-increasing demand for more knowledge spread, the printing press responded and a cornucopia of designs – some profound, others a flop – made their way to the farthest corners of the earth. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday by appointment only.
