The Soule Steam Works look like the worker just left for holiday. Knowledgeable tour guide who actually worked on the equipment on display. We will be sure to return for Steam Fest the first weekend in November.

Interesting place to visit. It showcases an old steam factory. You should have good shoes when touring. The first weekend in November is an annual festival.

This museum hghlights Meridian's history of "steam-feed" industries. The site is the old Soule Steam Feed Works, and the Miner Edger Works that operated here until the 1990's.
