The only surviving facility of its time in North America, the museum is a National Historic Site and a Civil and Power Engineering Landmark. These Canadian-made engines are the oldest surviving examples in the nation.
Thomas Keefer, one of Canada's most noted engineers, selected two independently-operating 70-ton Woolf Compound Rotative Beam Engines to pump Lake Ontario Water to a reservoir atop the Niagara Escarpment to be later carried though pipes to the growing city of Hamilton below. The engines were built by the Dundas Iron and Brass Foundry.
