Jerry visits the Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology
In partnership with: Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology
Jerry does some “Steam Travel” at Hamilton’s Museum of Steam & Technology, a National Historic Site and Civil Engineering Landmark. He learns about how steam power supplied water to the city for 51 years, from 1859 to 1910. James McFarlane, the Chief Engineer of the Hamilton Pump, explains to Jerry why the pumphouse was built, and how it all works. SPOILER ALERT: Jerry finds one of Captain Nemo’s missing artifacts!
