Take a step back in time this summer at this hidden Wallsburg gem

WALLSBURG, Utah — Tucked away in the rolling hills of this rural Wasatch County town is an oasis for car lovers and history buffs alike.

Located 20 minutes south of Heber City at 50 Starks Lane in Wallsburg, the Antique & Classic Power Museum, which opened for the summer season on May 31, claims to have the best display of vintage vehicles and engines in Utah.

The museum is made up of 24 buildings, several of which are filled with classic cars including Model T and Model A Fords, as well as early flat-head V8’s.

Visitors can view a collection of 150 motorcycles including Harley-Davidson, Indian, Excelsior and Henderson bikes dating back to the 1900s, as well as 120 farm tractors, including steam and gas-powered models.

The property is also home to a pioneer village, which features a church, log cabins dating back to the 1800s, a functioning train, sawmill and smithy, as well as historical replicas of small shops and stores.

The museum is a proponent of the Richard W. Erickson Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving early American history.

“The Antique and Classic Power Museum is a Utah treasure,” said Russell Baker, chairman of the Richard W. Erickson Foundation. “The Pioneer Village and 1900’s Saw Mill create a great backdrop for visitors to enjoy the hundreds of classic cars, motorcycles and other vehicles on display at the museum. This year, we’ve worked especially diligently in the off season to bring even more fun, family activities to entertain and educate folks of all ages in Wallsburg’s pristine mountain setting.”
